OpenAI and Common Sense Media Unite to Foster Responsible AI Use in Education
OpenAI has announced a collaboration with Common Sense Media, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ensuring the safety and accessibility of technology for children.
The joint initiative aims to provide guidance to teenagers on the responsible and secure utilization of artificial intelligence (AI).
Speaking at a Common Sense event in San Francisco, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman emphasized the commitment to developing a tool that is not only broadly available but also safe and responsible for educational purposes.
Common Sense Media has been actively involved in creating an AI ratings and review system, designed for parents, children, and educators to gain a better understanding of the risks and benefits associated with technology.
Among the questions Common Sense seeks to address are whether AI contributes to fostering a love of learning among youth, if it upholds human and children's rights, and if it has the potential to propagate misinformation.
The collaborative effort aims to formulate guidelines and educational materials related to AI for children, educators, and parents.
Additionally, it seeks to curate "family-friendly" GPT-branded large language models in accordance with Common Sense's ratings and standards.
GPT, the underlying technology for OpenAI's ChatGPT chatbot launched in late 2022, will be a focal point for this partnership.
Common Sense Media CEO Jim Steyer emphasized that the materials produced through this collaboration will play a crucial role in educating families and educators about the safe and responsible use of ChatGPT.
The overarching goal is to collectively mitigate any unintended consequences associated with the burgeoning technology.
