It's being reported this morning that today the Biden administration said that leading artificial intelligence companies are among more than 200 entities joining a new U.S. consortium to support the safe development and deployment of generative AI that includes Apple Inc.

Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo announced the U.S. AI Safety Institute Consortium (AISIC), which includes OpenAI, Alphabet's Google, Anthropic and Microsoft along with Facebook-parent Meta Platforms, Apple,, Nvidia Palantir, Intel, JPMorgan Chase and Bank of America.

"The U.S. government has a significant role to play in setting the standards and developing the tools we need to mitigate the risks and harness the immense potential of artificial intelligence," Raimondo said in a statement.

The consortium, which also includes BP, Cisco Systems, IBM, Hewlett Packard, Northop Grumman, Mastercard, Qualcomm, Visa and major academic institutions and government agencies, will be housed under the U.S. AI Safety Institute (USAISI).

The group is tasked with working on priority actions outlined in President Biden’s October AI executive order "including developing guidelines for red-teaming, capability evaluations, risk management, safety and security, and watermarking synthetic content."

Major AI companies last year pledged to watermark AI-generated content to make the technology safer. Just yesterday, Meta announced that they're "Labeling AI-Generated Images on Facebook, Instagram and Threads."

Red-teaming has been used for years in cybersecurity to identify new risks, with the term referring to U.S. Cold War simulations where the enemy was termed the "red team."

Biden's order directed agencies to set standards for that testing and to address related chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and cybersecurity risks. For more, read the full Reuters report.
