Week 11: What’s Happening in AI
Companies make AI commitments at The White House. Plus: AI Insight Forum, EU supercomputer access, AI could reshape governments, and more.
Welcome to this week’s edition of What's Happening in AI, covering the latest in policy, responsible AI, and where AI is going for the Responsible Innovation Labs community.
Below: EU opens its supercomputers to startups, how AI could reshape governments, and more. First, this week’s big story: The White House secures a second round of voluntary commitments (and news from today’s AI Insight Forum)
- Why this matters: In the context of broader regulation efforts, companies leading on AI (ex. Inflection, OpenAI, Microsoft) are working to deliver on these commitments
- What's next: Regulatory action from Congress (Schumer, Blumenthal and Hawley, AI transparency hearing), Executive Order (White House, California and other states, agencies, etc.)
- Who’s signed: July (Amazon, Anthropic, Google, Inflection, Meta, Microsoft, OpenAI), September (Adobe, Cohere, IBM, Nvidia, Palantir, Salesforce, Scale AI, Stability)
- Consider: Role of technology leaders to help shape effective regulation (ex. 20+ executives at AI Insight Forum, Microsoft’s Brad Smith in a Senate hearing this week)
- Comments: “Imperative”, “the right next step”, “trust and safety at the center of the most powerful AI systems”, “ongoing collaboration”
