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. 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.
