OpenAI and Common Sense, two leading organizations in the field of artificial intelligence, have announced a new partnership to promote safe and responsible AI use among kids.
The partnership will involve creating educational resources, conducting research, and developing best practices for AI literacy and ethics for young people and their families.
The partnership comes at a critical moment, as AI technologies are becoming more pervasive and powerful in everyday life.
From social media platforms to smart assistants, AI can offer many benefits and opportunities for learning, creativity, and entertainment.
The goal of the partnership is to empower kids to understand, interact with, and shape AI in positive ways, while also protecting them from potential harm.
OpenAI is a research organization that aims to ensure that artificial intelligence is used for good and that it can be aligned with human values.
OpenAI is known for creating groundbreaking AI systems, such as GPT-3, a natural language processing model that can generate coherent texts on various topics.
Common Sense is a nonprofit organization that provides trusted information and advice for families and educators on media and technology issues.
Common Sense also advocates for policies that support the well-being of kids in the digital age.
OpenAI and Common Sense Partner to Promote Safe AI
ChatGPT is a powerful conversational AI tool that can generate realistic and engaging text based on user input. However, ChatGPT is not perfect and it may sometimes produce inaccurate or biased information that does not reflect the truth or the diversity of perspectives.
This can be problematic, especially for young users who may not have the critical thinking skills or the background knowledge to evaluate the quality and reliability of the generated text.
Therefore, it is important to educate both users and their parents or teachers about the strengths and weaknesses of ChatGPT and how to use it safely and responsibly.
That is why OpenAI and Common Sense Media have partnered to create a new initiative that aims to bridge the gap between generations and provide useful resources for families and schools to learn about conversational AI.
The initiative will offer guidelines and best practices for using ChatGPT in a fun and ethical way, as well as educational materials that explain how ChatGPT works, what it can and cannot do, and what the potential risks and benefits of using it.

Moreover, the initiative will feature a “family-friendly” section within OpenAI’s GPT Store, where users can find safe and curated conversational apps that have been reviewed by Common Sense Media experts.
The partnership between OpenAI and Common Sense Media is a positive step towards creating a more informed and safe digital environment for young users and their caregivers.
By raising awareness and providing guidance, the initiative hopes to empower users to make the most of ChatGPT’s amazing capabilities while also being mindful of its limitations and challenges.
