Safety Measures Necessary for Artificial Intelligence, Says Top US Official

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been rapidly advancing, posing a potential threat that requires protective measures to be implemented from the outset, rather than as an afterthought, stated a top US official on Monday.

“We have normalized a world where technological products are released full of vulnerabilities and it is expected that consumers patch them. We cannot live in such a world with AI,” said Jen Easterly, Director of the US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency.

“It is too powerful, and its progress is too rapid,” she added during a phone interview following a meeting in Ottawa with Sami Khoury, Head of the Canadian Centre for Cyber Security.

Easterly spoke about this on the same day as 18 countries, including the United States, endorsed new UK guidelines on AI cybersecurity, which focus on safe design, development, implementation, and maintenance.

“We must consider security throughout the entire lifecycle of AI ownership,” Khoury said.

Earlier this month, leading AI developers agreed to collaborate with governments in testing new models before their deployment to better manage the technological risks in fast development.

“I think we have done everything possible so far to bring nations together with technology companies and technically expose the building of these capabilities to be as safe and secure as possible,” Easterly said.

What are the guidelines for AI cybersecurity?
The new guidelines for AI cybersecurity focus on safe design, development, implementation, and maintenance to ensure safety and security throughout the entire lifecycle of AI ownership.

What measures have been taken regarding the safety of Artificial Intelligence?
Leading AI developers have agreed to collaborate with governments in testing new models before deploying them to manage risks and ensure the safety and security in the use of this fast-developing technology.

Have all countries endorsed the new guidelines for AI cybersecurity?
Yes, agencies from 18 countries, including the United States, have endorsed the new guidelines on AI cybersecurity developed in the United Kingdom.
