OpenAI has established the “Preparedness team”, led by Aleksander Madry, to assess and safeguard against potential catastrophic risks posed by AI models. These risks encompass AI’s capacity to deceive, generate malicious code, and even threats in fields like chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear areas. The team’s responsibilities include forecasting, tracking, and studying various AI risk scenarios, from the conceivable to the more far-fetched. OpenAI is actively seeking community input on risk studies, offering a $25,000 prize and job opportunities in Preparedness for the top submissions. Preparedness aims to develop a “risk-informed development policy” to enhance AI model evaluation, monitoring, risk mitigation, and governance. The initiative underscores OpenAI’s commitment to safety and preparedness for highly capable AI systems.
