OpenAI Establishes New Team to Combat “Catastrophic Risks” Associated with AI

The “Catastrophic Risks” may include threats related to nuclear technology.

OpenAI has announced the establishment of a new team dedicated to addressing and minimizing the “catastrophic risks” associated with artificial intelligence. 

In their recent update on Thursday, Open AI revealed that this preparedness team’s mission is to diligently monitor, assess, predict, and safeguard against significant challenges arising from AI, which may include threats as those related to nuclear technology. 

Additionally, the team will also focus on reducing the potential dangers stemming from “chemical, biological, and radiological threats,” as well as preventing “autonomous replication,” which involves AI independently creating copies of itself. The team will also address risks related to AI’s capacity to deceive humans and tackle issues concerning cybersecurity threats.
