You’ll soon find a kid-friendly section on OpenAI a newly launched store for custom GPTs. There is a company joined forces With Common Sense Media, a non-profit organization that evaluates media and technology for their suitability for children to minimize the risks of adolescent use of artificial intelligence. Together, they intend to create artificial intelligence guides and educational materials for young people, their parents and educators. The two organizations will also select a collection of family-friendly GPTs based on Common Sense’s ratings on OpenAI’s GPT store, allowing them to see which ones are appropriate for younger users.
“Together, Common Sense and OpenAI will work to make sure AI has a positive impact on all teens and families,” said James P. Steyer, founder and CEO of Common Sense Media. “Our guides and curation will be designed to educate families and educators about the safe, responsible use of ChatGPT so that together we can prevent the unintended consequences of this emerging technology.”
according to Axios, the partnership was announced at Common Sense’s kids and families summit in San Francisco, where OpenAI CEO Sam Altman dismissed the idea that AI is bad for kids and should be kept out of schools. “People are tool users, and we better teach people to use the tools that are going to be in the world,” he said. “It would be a mistake not to teach people how to use them.” The CEO also said that future high school students will be able to operate at a higher level of abstraction and achieve more than their predecessors with the help of artificial intelligence.
