In a landmark move at the AI Seoul Summit 2024 on Tuesday, sixteen prominent companies at the forefront of artificial intelligence (AI) innovation pledged to prioritize safety and responsibility in AI development. This collective initiative, known as the ‘Frontier AI Safety Commitments’, aims to establish robust safety standards as AI technologies become increasingly integrated into daily life.

Industry leaders such as Amazon, Google, IBM, Meta, Microsoft, and OpenAI, along with emerging players like Anthropic, Cohere, G42, Inflection AI, Mistral AI, Naver, Samsung Electronics, Technology Innovation Institute, xAI, and, have joined forces in this endeavor. Their commitments are further bolstered by a broader Seoul declaration supported by the Group of Seven (G7) major economies, the EU, Singapore, Australia, and South Korea.

These companies have committed to advancing AI within a framework of safety and trust, underscoring the importance of responsible innovation. To achieve this, they have agreed to adhere to a set of voluntary principles designed to mitigate significant risks associated with AI technologies. A key component of their commitment is the publication of a comprehensive safety framework by the time of the upcoming AI Summit in France.

The commitments encompass various aspects of AI safety throughout its lifecycle, from development to deployment. They include thorough risk assessments, the establishment of intolerable risk thresholds, and the implementation of effective risk mitigation strategies. These tech giants will also maintain transparency by informing the public about their methodologies and any substantial changes to their practices.

Significantly, the commitments also emphasize collaboration within the industry. This involves internal and external red-teaming to identify and address emerging threats, fostering information sharing, and strengthening cybersecurity measures. Additionally, the signatories have pledged to enable third-party evaluations of their systems and to develop technologies that help users distinguish AI-generated content.

Accountability is a central tenet of these commitments. Each organization has vowed to develop internal governance frameworks to ensure adherence to these safety protocols and to dedicate sufficient resources for continuous improvement.
