Today, IBM is proud to join President Biden and a broad group of stakeholders at the White House to acknowledge the tremendous opportunity of AI and our shared commitment to harness it responsibly. This new Executive Order’s focus on the federal government’s use and procurement of AI systems is critical, as its massive purchasing power can set the bar for adopting trustworthy AI.
We’re pleased that this Executive Order creates new opportunities for innovation and research, regarding the safety and risk-management of AI foundation models. But we also believe the best way to address potential AI safety concerns is through open innovation. A robust open-source ecosystem with a diversity of voices - including creators, developers, and academics - will help rapidly advance the science of AI safety and foster competition in the marketplace.
For over a century, IBM has been at the forefront of introducing powerful technologies while prioritizing safety and security. Through our commitment to responsible AI, IBM is uniquely positioned to help government agencies adopt AI in ways that are responsible, trusted and a real benefit for the American people.
Today’s order is just the beginning as we ensure the responsible use of AI across the federal government. IBM welcomes Congress’ focus on AI as well, and we are pleased to participate in forums like the recent AI Insight Forum hosted by Senator Chuck Schumer, as we advocate for a risk-based approach to AI regulation that will provide firm guardrails for protecting society while ensuring America continues as the world leader in AI innovation and open-source development.
