🔗 OpenAI has a new safety team — it’s run by Sam Altman // Emma Roth // theverge.com

For its first task, the new team will “evaluate and further develop OpenAI’s processes and safeguards.” It will then present its findings to OpenAI’s board, which all three of the safety team’s leaders have a seat on. The board will then decide how to implement the safety team’s recommendations.

I don’t know much about the inner workings of OpenAI, but I can say that Altman’s reputation makes this seem like a farce. I literally laughed out loud when I read this headline.
