Sunday Paper - A Right to Warn about Advanced Artificial Intelligence

Former Google DeepMind ane OpenAI employees demand transparency and accountability from AI companies on risk issues.

AI companies have strong financial incentives to avoid effective oversight, and we do not believe bespoke structures of corporate governance are sufficient to change this.

AI companies possess substantial non-public information about the capabilities and limitations of their systems, the adequacy of their protective measures, and the risk levels of different kinds of harm. However, they currently have only weak obligations to share some of this information with governments, and none with civil society. We do not think they can all be relied upon to share it voluntarily.

So long as there is no effective government oversight of these corporations, current and former employees are among the few people who can hold them accountable to the public. – A Right to Warn about Advanced Artificial Intelligence
