The AI Safety Institute has launched a new testing platform, Inspect, aimed at bolstering AI safety evaluations worldwide.

The UK-built platform is set to streamline and accelerate global safety assessments, fostering collaboration among researchers and developers.

The release of Inspect marks a significant milestone in the drive towards greater collaboration on AI safety evaluations. By providing the platform to the global AI community, the AI Safety Institute aims to expedite the progress of safety evaluations, leading to more robust testing methods and the development of secure AI models. This initiative seeks to establish a consistent approach to AI safety evaluations worldwide.

Key Features of Inspect

Inspect, an open-source software library, empowers testers from various sectors, including startups, academia, and AI developers, to assess specific capabilities of AI models and generate scores based on their findings. It facilitates evaluation across multiple domains, including core knowledge, reasoning ability, and autonomous capabilities. With its open-source licensing, Inspect is freely available for use by the AI community.

The release of Inspect is backed by the UK government, highlighting the country’s commitment to AI safety. Secretary of State for Science, Innovation, and Technology, Michelle Donelan, emphasised the importance of UK leadership in AI safety and the potential benefits of safe AI for various sectors, from healthcare to transportation.

Future Collaborative Efforts

Ian Hogarth, Chair of the AI Safety Institute, expressed pride in open-sourcing Inspect and highlighted the importance of collaboration in AI safety testing. He underscored the platform’s potential to serve as a foundation for future AI safety initiatives and encouraged global participation in refining and expanding Inspect.

In addition to the launch of Inspect, the AI Safety Institute, Incubator for AI (i.AI), and Number 10 will collaborate to accelerate the development of new open-source AI safety tools. These tools aim to provide developers with greater insights into AI models’ safety and foster a culture of responsible AI development.

The launch of Inspect and the collaborative efforts to develop additional safety tools signify a concerted push towards advancing AI safety practices and ensuring the responsible development of AI technologies.
