OpenAI, an AI startup, revealed that it has formed a Safety and Security Committee, which will be chaired by CEO Sam Altman and other board members, while it begins training its next AI model.

While it starts training its next AI model, OpenAI has established a Safety and Security Committee, which will be chaired by CEO Sam Altman and other board members, the AI startup announced on Tuesday.

The committee will be led by directors Bret Taylor, Adam D’Angelo, and Nicole Seligman as well, OpenAI announced in a corporate blog.

backed by Microsoft (MSFT.O), opens a new tab As AI models grow more potent, OpenAI’s chatbots with generative AI features—such as conversing like humans and producing visuals in response to text prompts—have raised questions about safety.

The new committee will be in charge of advising the board on matters pertaining to security and safety for OpenAI’s operations and projects.

Gil Luria, managing director of D.A. Davidson, stated, “A new safety committee signifies OpenAI completing a move to become a commercial entity from a more undefined non-profit-like entity.”

“That should help streamline product development while maintaining accountability.”

Ilya Sutskever, the former chief scientist, and Jan Leike, the head of OpenAI’s Superalignment team, which made sure AI stayed in line with the goals, departed the company earlier this month.

Days after the high-profile departures, CNBC reported that OpenAI had dissolved the Superalignment team earlier in May, less than a year after the company established it, with some team members being relocated to other groups.

Over the next ninety days, the committee’s first assignment will be to assess and refine OpenAI’s current safety procedures. Once that is done, it will present its findings to the board.

OpenAI announced that it will make available to the public an update on the recommendations that were implemented following the board’s study.

Jakub Pachocki, the recently appointed Chief Scientist, and Matt Knight, the head of security, are among the other members of the group.

The business will also confer with other specialists, such as John Carlin, a former Department of Justice official, and Rob Joyce, a former cybersecurity director of the United States National Security Agency.

The new “frontier” model that OpenAI is training is not described in any further detail, other than to say that it will advance its systems to the “next level of capabilities on our path to AGI.”

It unveiled a new AI model earlier in May that can interact with text and images and have realistic voice conversations.
