OpenAI safety teams

Our teams span a wide spectrum of technical efforts tackling AI safety challenges at OpenAI. The Safety Systems team stays closest to the deployment risk while our Superalignment team focuses on aligning superintelligence and our Preparedness team focuses on safety assessments for frontier models.

Sharing our expertise

We collaborate with industry leaders and policymakers to ensure that AI systems are developed in a trustworthy manner.

This technology will profoundly transform how we live. There is still time to guide its trajectory, limit abuse, and secure the most broadly beneficial outcomes.
