Progress in artificial intelligence (AI) depends on talented researchers, well-designed algorithms, quality datasets, and powerful hardware. The relative importance of these factors is often debated, with many recent “notable” models requiring massive expenditures of advanced hardware. But how important is computational power for AI progress in general? This data brief explores the results of a survey of more than 400 AI researchers to evaluate the importance and distribution of computational needs.

Breaking Defense published an article that explores both the potential benefits and risks of generative artificial intelligence, featuring insights from CSET's Micah Musser.

CSET's Josh A. Goldstein and OpenAI's Girish Sastry co-authored an insightful article on language models and disinformation that was published in Foreign Affairs.

CSET Senior Fellow Dr. Heather Frase discussed her research on effectively evaluating and assessing AI systems across a broad range of applications.

Artificial intelligence systems are rapidly being deployed in all sectors of the economy, yet significant research has demonstrated that these systems can be vulnerable to a wide array of attacks. How different are these problems from more common cybersecurity vulnerabilities? What legal ambiguities do they create, and how can organizations ameliorate them? This report, produced in collaboration with the Program on Geopolitics, Technology, and Governance at the Stanford Cyber Policy Center, presents the recommendations of a July 2022 workshop of experts to help answer these questions.

NPR published an article featuring CSET's Josh Goldstein. Goldstein provided expert insight on the topic.
