As AI systems become more powerful, a new framework for evaluating extreme risks from general-purpose models that have strong skills in manipulation, deception, cyber-offense, or other dangerous capabilities is needed to identify novel threats. Model evaluation is not a panacea and must be combined with other risk assessment tools and wider dedication to safety across industry, government, and civil society.
The recent Senate hearing on AI saw industry reps agreeing to regulate new AI technologies, but some experts fear this could lead to industry capture and harm smaller firms.

The focus on future harms has become a common rhetorical sleight of hand among AI industry figures, while the EU's forthcoming AI Act has clear prohibitions of known and current harmful AI use cases.
Israel's Defence Ministry aims to become an artificial intelligence superpower, with a dedicated organisation for military robotics and a high budget for research and development. The advancements in AI could lead to autonomous warfare and streamlined
AI systems may exceed expert skill level in most domains within 10 years, requiring special treatment and coordination to manage risks and ensure safety. Public oversight is crucial for governance of the most powerful systems. OpenAI believes in the potential benefits of AI but also recognizes the need to mitigate risks.
Generative AI systems offer unprecedented opportunities for progress, but also come with risks such as fake content and bias. IBM urges ethics and responsibility to be at the forefront of AI agendas, with smart regulation and transparency around data privacy. A blanket pause on training is not the solution.
G7 leaders call for technical standards to ensure trustworthy AI and align rules with shared democratic values. They recognize varying approaches, but urge development of risk-based AI rules and creation of a ministerial forum to
