AI Companies Agree to White House Principles

Tech agrees to internal and external testing prior to releasing AI systems

Jul 21, 2023

On Friday, the Biden Administration announced that Amazon, Anthropic, Google, Inflection, Meta, Microsoft and OpenAI were committing to voluntary principles for the responsible development of AI. The principles include a commitment to ensuring AI products are safe before their release, a commitment to prioritizing security in AI systems, and transparency measures to build public trust. 

“With AI moving forward as quickly as it is, these commitments put some important safeguards in place while Congress works out a legal framework for AI regulation,” said Chamber of Progress CEO Adam Kovacevich. “This is a smart,  collaborative approach that helps keep consumers safe while keeping the U.S. tech sector at the forefront of AI innovation.”

Last month, a coalition of tech groups, including Chamber of Progress, Engine, and the Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council sent a joint letter to congressional leadership, urging lawmakers to keep small AI businesses in mind as they work to craft an AI regulatory framework. Chamber of Progress has also urged Congress to fully fund the National Artificial Intelligence Research Resource (NAIRR) in order to increase access to the computing power needed to conduct AI research and development.
