AI safety and security advisory board is named by US Homeland Security

A blue-ribbon board led by the CEOs of OpenAI, Microsoft, Nvidia, and Alphabet, the parent company of Google, was unveiled by the U.S. Homeland Security Department (DHS) on Friday.

The CEOs of OpenAI, Microsoft, Nvidia, and Google parent Alphabet are among the members of a blue-ribbon board that the U.S. Homeland Security Department (DHS) unveiled on Friday. The board’s purpose is to advise the government on the use of artificial intelligence in critical infrastructure.

The transportation industry, pipeline and power grid operators, internet service providers, and others will receive advice from the board on how to “prevent and prepare for AI-related disruptions to critical services that impact national or economic security, public health, or safety.”

The board will assist in ensuring the safe application of AI technology and how to handle risks posed by this technology to essential services like energy, utilities, transportation, defense, information technology, food and agriculture, and financial services, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas stated.

“It is not a board that will be focused on theory, but rather practical solutions for the implementation of AI in our nation’s daily lives,” Mayorkas stated to reporters. “It was very important to bring key developers of this extraordinary, powerful tool” on board.

Tech titans Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI; Dario Amodei, CEO of Anthropic; Jensen Huang, CEO of IBM, Arvind Krishna, CEO of Adobe, CEO of Shantanu Narayen, CEO of Microsoft, CEO of Satya Nadella, CEO of Alphabet, Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google (GOOGL.O), CEO of Cisco, CEO Chuck Robbins, CEO of Amazon Web Services, CEO of AMZN.O, CEO Adam Selipsky, and CEOs of Advanced Micro Devices, Adam Selipsky, and Lisa Su, are among the 22 members of the board.

DHS warned in its 2024 threat assessment that AI-assisted tools have the “potential to enable larger-scale, faster, more efficient, and more evasive cyber attacks—against targets, including pipelines, railways, and other US critical infrastructure.”

Additionally, it stated that “AI technologies that could undermine U.S. cyber defenses, including generative AI programs that support malicious activity such as malware attacks,” are being developed by China and other countries.
