Under the non-binding Voluntary AI Commitments on “Ensuring
Safe, Secure, and Trustworthy AI,” the companies pledged to
adhere to a set of eight rules focused on ensuring that AI

“intend[ed]… to remain in effect until regulations covering
substantially the same issues come into force.” The White
House also announced that it is working on an executive order and
pursuing bipartisan legislation to further regulate AI. Companies
