And the government should further tighten controls on the manufacture and export of AI chips, and channel federal funding toward “alignment” research that seeks to make advanced AI safer, it recommends. It was written by Gladstone AI, a four-person company that runs technical briefings on AI for government employees. “Frontier AI labs face an intense and immediate incentive to scale their AI systems as fast as they can,” the report says. The recommendation to outlaw the open-sourcing of advanced AI model weights, they expect, will not be popular. It aims to make AI safety and security “a key issue in the 2024 elections, with a goal of passing AI safety legislation by the end of 2024,” the group said in a statement to TIME.
