In a significant move towards enhancing child safety, OpenAI has announced its commitment to adopting Safety by Design principles. This initiative, part of a larger industry-wide effort led by Thorn and All Tech Is Human, aims to address the potential misuse of generative AI technologies in causing sexual harm against children.

A Collective Effort for a Safer Future

Joining forces with tech giants such as Amazon, Google, and Microsoft, OpenAI is dedicating itself to creating a safer digital environment for children. Through rigorous development, deployment, and maintenance practices, the tech industry seeks to prevent AI from being exploited for nefarious purposes.

Safety by Design: A Proactive Approach

Safety by Design principles guide companies to incorporate child safety at every stage of AI development. From sourcing training datasets responsibly to deploying solutions aimed at curbing adversarial misuse, these measures are critical for the responsible use of AI technologies.

OpenAI's Commitment
