As AI safety concerns mount, OpenAI’s trust and safety head steps down

Dave Willner, head of trust and safety at OpenAI, has transitioned to an advisory role after a year and a half in the position. Willner, who previously led trust and safety teams at Facebook and Airbnb, played a significant part in discussions surrounding regulation and responsibility in the AI ​​world after the launch of ChatGPT.

“Anyone with young children and a super intense job can relate to that tension, I think, and these past few months have really crystallized for me that I was going to have to prioritize one or the other,” he said in a LinkedIn post.

His departure occurs at a critical time for AI, as OpenAI’s president Greg Brockman is meeting with the White House alongside executives from major tech companies to discuss shared safety and transparency goals.
