Dangerous use risk for AI
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.
Why is dangerous use a concern for foundation models?
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.
