Biden urges rules for responsible use of AI

The meeting in the White House was attended by senior officials from Amazon, Anthropic, Google, Inflection, Meta, Microsoft and OpenAI. They pledged to adhere to certain principles when developing and using AI. For example, they promised to test AI programs internally and externally before they were launched. This puts these seven companies in the lead "in leading this innovation with responsibility and security," Biden said.

At the same time, the US President referred to the enormous changes brought about by AI. "We will see more technological changes in the next 10 years or even in the next few years than in the past 50 years," said Biden. "It was an amazing aha moment for me."

The White House said the corporations are committed to "creating a more comprehensive rule that will make it easier for consumers to tell whether content is artificially generated or not." "There is still technical work to be done, but the point is that it applies to audio and visual content and will be part of a larger system," a White House official said.

At the latest with the success of the chatbot ChatGPT developed by OpenAI, concerns have increased that image or sound recordings generated by AI could be used for fraud and misinformation. In the United States, with a view to the 2024 presidential election, ways are being sought to identify whether audio or visual material has been artificially generated in order to prevent fraud and forgery.

The White House says it wants to work with US allies on international rules for AI. The topic was already on the agenda at the G7 summit in Japan in May. The UK is expected to host an international AI summit in the fall.

At EU level, an extensive labeling requirement for AI-generated content is currently being discussed as part of a comprehensive AI law. Federal Digital Minister Volker Wissing (FDP) calls for the introduction of an AI seal for texts in addition to labeling image and sound recordings.
