Microsoft’s Brad Smith Raises Concerns About AI-Generated Deep Counterfeiting

While addressing the issue of how to regulate artificial intelligence, Microsoft President Brad Smith raised concerns about deep fakes, fake-looking, life-like content created by AI.

Smith emphasized the need to take steps to protect against altering legal content.

“We will have to deal with the issues surrounding deep fakes. We’re going to have to specifically address what we’re concerned about most foreign cyber-influence activities, the types of past and ongoing Russian, Chinese, Iranian government activities,” Smith said. said in a speech in Washington on Thursday.

“We need to take steps to protect against altering legitimate content with the intention of deceiving or deceiving people through the use of AI.”

Smith also called for licensing the most important forms of AI with “an obligation to protect security, physical security, cyber security, national security”.

He added: “We will need a new generation of export controls, at least an evolution of the export controls we have in place, to ensure that these models are not stolen or may not be used in a manner that violates a country’s export control requirements”.

Last week, Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI, the startup behind ChatGPT, told the Senate panel in his first appearance before Congress that the use of AI interferes with election integrity. Elections is an “area of ​​concern”, adding that it needs regulation.

OpenAI is supported by Microsoft.

Altman also calls for global cooperation on AI and encourages safety compliance.

Smith argued in a blog post released on Thursday that people need to be held accountable for any problems caused by AI, and he urged lawmakers to ensure that the brakes are safe. embedded in AI used to control the power grid, water supply, and other critical infrastructure so that humans remain in control.

He also urges the use of a “Know Your Customer”-style system for developers of powerful AI models to track their technology usage and inform the public about what AI is doing. created so they can identify fake videos.

For weeks, lawmakers in Washington have struggled with which legislation to pass to control AI even as companies large and small have raced to bring increasingly flexible AI to market.

Some of the proposals being considered on Capitol Hill would focus on AI that could put people’s lives or livelihoods at risk, as in medicine and finance. Others are pushing for rules to ensure AI is not used to discriminate or violate civil rights.
