White House Secures Commitments from Leading AI Companies for Safer AI Development

On July 21, the White House gathered seven of the world’s leading AI companies, including Amazon, Anthropic, Google, Inflection, Meta, Microsoft, and OpenAI to gain consensus over the responsible development of AI.

Reflecting the Administration’s ongoing commitment to leverage AI’s potential without compromising Americans’ rights and safety, these companies agreed to operate by the standards that emphasize safety, security, and trust in AI. This initiative showcases a collective understanding that AI’s benefits should not come at the expense of fundamental rights.

In line with the announcement, the Administration has been actively consulting international allies, aiming for a globally coordinated approach to AI. Countries engaged include Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, India, Japan, and many others. The collective goal is to establish shared principles for AI governance and safety.

Coming soon, the Office of Management and Budget will release draft policy guidance for federal agencies on AI usage, underpinning the overarching commitment to safeguarding the American public.
