What does the next frontier in AI safety look like? How do we evaluate it? And how can we develop strong safeguards for tomorrow's AI systems?

Combatting the novel challenges of next generation AI systems necessitates new safety techniques, spanning areas such as synthetic data generation and utilization, content moderation, and model training methodologies. The proliferation of open-source and personalized models tailored for various applications widens the scope of deployments, and amplifies the already-urgent need for robust safety tools. Moreover, this diverse range of potential deployments entails complex trade-offs between safety objectives and operational efficiency. Taken together, there is a broad set of urgent and unique research challenges and opportunities to ensure the safety of tomorrow's AI systems.

In this workshop, we take a proactive approach to safety and focus on five emerging trends in AI and explore the challenges associated with deploying these technologies safely:

We will bring together researchers across academia and industry working on improving safety and alignment of state-of-the-art AI systems as they are deployed. We aim for the event to facilitate sharing of challenges, best practices, new research ideas, data, and evaluations, that both practically aid development and spur progress in this area.
