OpenAI to Train New Flagship AI Model, With Better AI Safety

OpenAI initiates the training of its next Flagship AI model, intended to succeed GPT-4. The company states, “OpenAI has recently begun training its next flagship model,” anticipating that it will elevate capabilities on the path to AGI. The latest GPT-4o model, integrating native audio inputs and outputs, enhances human-like interactions with ChatGPT. OpenAI also said it was creating a new Committee for AI safety.

Safety in AI Development

OpenAI forms a safety committee to advise its board on crucial decisions amidst concerns over the safety of AI. The newly established safety and security committee will provide recommendations to the board on critical safety and security matters. Chaired by Bret Taylor, it includes directors Adam D’Angelo and Nicole Seligman, along with CEO Sam Altman. This initiative aims to enhance OpenAI’s commitment to AI safety.

Challenges and Controversies

The establishment of the safety committee follows heightened scrutiny over OpenAI’s approach to safety. Former employees and industry experts raise concerns about the company’s prioritization of safety amid technological advancements. Recent resignations, including those of Jan Leike and Ilya Sutskever, underscore the internal challenges.

Leike’s critique, articulated in a detailed post, questions OpenAI’s commitment to AI safety, accusing the company of prioritizing “shiny products” over safety measures. OpenAI’s response emphasizes the committee’s focus on evaluating and enhancing safety processes and safeguards over the next 90 days.

The committee’s recommendations will be presented to the full board, with OpenAI committed to implementing adopted recommendations. Beyond internal challenges, OpenAI faces external controversies, including disputes over nondisclosure agreements and public conflicts with notable figures like Scarlett Johansson.

As OpenAI navigates these challenges, the establishment of the new committee underscores its ongoing commitment to prioritize safety in its AI development endeavors.
