CNET Reports on Global Tech Companies' AI Summit

Ian Sherr writes the following for CNET:

World governments and leading tech companies … made a series of pledges at a summit in Seoul, South Korea, focused on artificial intelligence, promising investments in research, testing and safety. 

Amazon, Google, Meta, Microsoft, OpenAI and Samsung were among the companies that made the voluntary, nonbinding commitments to steer AI away from working on bioweapons, disinformation or automated cyberattacks, according to statements from the summit and reporting from Reuters and AP. The companies also agreed to build a ‘kill switch’ into their AIs, effectively allowing them to shut down their systems in the case of a catastrophe.
