Description

The possibility that a model could be misused for dangerous purposes such as creating plans to develop weapons, malware, or causing harm to others is the risk of dangerous use.

Enabling people to harm others is unethical and can be illegal. A model that has this potential must be properly governed. Otherwise, business entities could face fines, reputational harms, and other legal consequences.
