No 10 acknowledges ‘existential’ risk of AI for first time 👀
🤖 For the first time, No. 10 acknowledges the "existential" risk of artificial intelligence as Rishi Sunak and top AI researchers discuss the safety and regulation of the technology.
💡 The heads of Google DeepMind, OpenAI and Anthropic AI met with Sunak and Chloe Smith to discuss safety measures, voluntary actions, and international collaboration on AI safety and regulation.
🌎 The risks associated with AI technology were discussed, ranging from disinformation and national security to existential threats, and the need for AI regulation to keep up with the fast-moving advances in the technology.
👀 Despite generally positive attitudes towards AI development, the UK government now recognizes the potential dangers of developing powerful AI without appropriate safeguards.
🧐 OpenAI's CEO, Sam Altman, called for world leaders to establish an international body to regulate the development speed of AI similar to the International Atomic Energy Agency for regulating atomic weapons.
🤔 As AI continues to develop at a rapid pace, it's crucial for governments to understand the risks that come with it and enact regulations that minimize harm. \n\n
