Check Out Lapis Labs and their New Article in Time Magazine

Lapis Labs: University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign based Student-led Artificial Intelligence research organization

Lapis Labs has been working on innovative solutions to some of the most pressing questions about AI: What happens when a model has built potentially hazardous knowledge into its primary knowledge base – and how do you get rid of that information while preserving the rest of the working model.

This work has resulted in a new proxy called The Weapons of Mass Destruction Proxy (WMDP) that is getting a lot of attention. Lapis Labs has released a paper on their groundbreaking research: The WMDP Benchmark: Measuring and Reducing Malicious Use With Unlearning.

More information on their paper about WMDP and “Unlearning” can be found here: This proxy was also featured in TIME Magazine this month, “Researchers Develop New Technique to Wipe Dangerous Knowledge from AI Systems“.
