OpenAI Partners with Common Sense Media to Democratize AI Access for Children

The partnership between OpenAI and Common Sense Media seeks to create AI guidelines and educational materials catered to children, educators, and parents.

OpenAI has teamed up with non-profit organization Common Sense Media to come up with guidelines and educational resources related to AI for teenagers and families. OpenAI CEO Sam Altman said that the aim is to ensure the safe and responsible use of AI, making it widely accessible to teens involved in their educational experiences.

The partnership between OpenAI and Common Sense Media seeks to create AI guidelines and educational materials catered to children, educators, and parents. This initiative also aims to curate family-friendly models based on GPT-branded large language models adhering to Common Sense's standards. 

The partnership “will be designed to educate families and educators about safe, responsible use of ChatGPT, so that we can collectively avoid any unintended consequences of this emerging technology,” said Jim Steyer, CEO of Common Sense Media.

The company is dedicated to promoting safe technology use for children and has been developing an AI ratings and review system. Its focus is to assess whether AI fosters a love for learning among youth, respects human and children's rights, and can prevent the dissemination of misinformation.

The partnership's broader goal is to benefit those with limited access to AI, especially children. Altman also added that if LLMs like GPT-4 can be customized for educational purposes, it could potentially help teenagers “who want to learn about science or learn about biology.”

“I don’t think we know yet exactly how people are going to want to use it,” Altman said. He added that he envisions a world in which “every teen or every adult is going to have a personalized AI.”

Regarding the potential misuse of AI in the upcoming elections, OpenAI is proactively preparing for potential challenges, setting up a robust response effort closely monitored to mitigate risks posed by AI manipulation.
