This report reflects the incredible work of the SCSP staff. The depth of research, meticulous attention to detail, and thoroughness showcased are truly commendable. In addition, we thank SCSP’s Board of Advisors, Dr. Eric Schmidt, Michèle Flournoy, Dr. Nadia Schadlow, William “Mac” Thornberry, and Robert Work. Their intellectual leadership since this project’s inception has been invaluable. Lastly, we are grateful to Dr. Andrew Moore and Dr. Tom Mitchell, who co-chaired SCSP’s Task Force on Generative AI and brought together some of the major frontier model companies and researchers that helped inform this important work.
When harnessed properly, generative AI (GenAI) has the potential to transform productivity, efficiency, and innovation itself. SCSP staff wrote this report with supervised assistance from GenAI tools, such as ChatGPT, Bard, and Claude, in the following ways:
Surfacing and summarizing recent research on relevant topics, which was subsequently reviewed by humans.
Brainstorming text for specific topics or sections.
Experimenting with various writing styles and levels of detail.
Identifying examples in support of the report’s claims, which were subsequently cross-checked by a human for accuracy and relevance.
Evaluating the report’s claims for logical consistency, comprehensiveness, redundancy, and potential counterarguments.
GenAI was at no point used to generate text, sources, or numbers that were not subsequently reviewed closely by humans.
