CSET’s Dewey Murdick and Jack Corrigan shared their expert analysis in an op-ed published by The Hill. In their piece, they delve into the rapid introduction of generative artificial intelligence tools such as OpenAI’s ChatGPT and Google’s Bard, which has prompted concerns among leaders in government, industry, and academia regarding the control of the development and utilization of this emerging technology. Murdick and Corrigan highlight three essential goals for policymakers: promoting AI innovation, preventing misuse by authoritarian entities, and ensuring the safety of AI-enabled products.
In addition, Murdick and Corrigan spotlight their recent report, The Policy Playbook, which outlines a framework for a systems-oriented approach to technology and national security strategy. It identifies and discusses the tensions among three strategic goals of technology and national security policy — driving technological innovation, impeding adversaries’ progress, and promoting safe, values-driven technology deployment — and highlights various levers of power that policymakers can use to pursue those goals.
