The UK to Launch International AI Advisory Group at Bletchley Park Summit
UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak to Lead AI Advisory Group
UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak is set to announce the formation of an international advisory group on artificial intelligence (AI) at an upcoming summit held at Bletchley Park. This initiative aims to position the UK as a global leader in AI regulation, following the structure of the United Nations’ climate change panel. The advisory group will consist of a team of rotating academics and experts who will publish annual reports on AI advancements and the future trajectory of its development.
Establishment of an AI Safety Institute
Alongside this initiative, the UK will establish an AI safety institute with a primary focus on evaluating national security risks associated with machine learning models. These risks include cyber attacks and bioweapons. The government is actively supporting international collaboration on frontier AI safety, which encompasses advanced models like OpenAI’s ChatGPT and Google’s Bard.
Summit to Foster AI Discussions
The upcoming summit will bring together AI executives, researchers, government leaders, and Chinese officials. The participants will engage in discussions on various topics, including the health and defense benefits of AI, election disruption, misinformation spread, and opportunities for AI across the economy.
International Panel on AI Safety (IPAIS)
The proposed International Panel on AI Safety (IPAIS), supported by US AI leaders Eric Schmidt and Mustafa Suleyman, aims to serve as an impartial evaluator of AI risks. Backed by £100 million in funding, the UK’s “frontier AI” task force could potentially evolve into a permanent international institution. This strategic move aligns with the UK’s broader objective of positioning itself at the forefront of global AI regulation.
