Subject: Stanford HAI Paper on "Societal Implications of Open Foundation Models"
Date: Wed, 28 Feb 2024 15:30:00 -0500
The Stanford University Center for Human-Centered Ai has just published an important paper titled "Societal Implications of Open Foundation Models" which covers a number of topics but also helps to clarify questions about what constitute "open" foundation (or large language) models, which is a very vexing question; the intertwining of code, process and data leads to very different ideas about what it means to be open when compared to historical open source community practices. Strongly recommended.
