UK to host AI safety summit in November

16/08/2023 | Financial Times

After Politico reported that Prime Minister Rishi Sunak is running out of time to deliver on his artificial intelligence (AI) summit promise on Tuesday, the Financial Times (£) revealed the UK government will host a summit on the safety of AI to address global threats to democracy in November at Bletchley Park, where British codebreakers were based during WWII. Leading academics and executives from AI companies, including Google’s DeepMind, Microsoft, OpenAI, and Anthropic, will be invited to attend. The summit will bring together ‘Like-minded’ countries and technology companies to drive targeted, rapid international action and to build on developing the regulatory guardrails needed for the safe and responsible development of AI.
