Sridhar Ramaswamy concurs with Attariyan regarding increased governmental involvement in the early stages. In mid-September, the U.S. Senate hosted a private informational roundtable featuring leaders from OpenAI, NVIDIA, Google, Meta, and more. However, Ramaswamy cautions that swift regulatory intervention may not necessarily address the issues efficiently.
Highlighting the complexity of narrow tech regulation, Ramaswamy references Section 230 of the 1996 U.S. Communications Decency Act, which grants websites immunity for third-party content. While pivotal for shaping the internet, Section 230 has contributed to issues such as misinformation, hate speech, and bullying.
Anoosh Saboori, Snowflake’s Head of Product Security, anticipates that industry leaders, particularly chief information security officers (CISOs), will play a pivotal role in addressing ethical concerns and liability risks associated with generative AI. He emphasizes the need for a framework to evaluate generative AI providers, focusing on security, compliance, and ethical use.
Saboori asserts that market dynamics will drive change, with the government subsequently following suit. He notes signals from the government indicating a proactive approach, soliciting input from the industry to define responsible AI standards.
