UK AI summit to weigh election disruption and security risks

Oct 15
At a worldwide summit in the UK next month, politicians and corporate executives will talk about the danger of humans losing control of artificial intelligence, potential election disruptions, and the national security issues posed by the technology.

In her opening remarks, UK Technology Minister Michelle Donelan will lay out the government's vision for how safety and security will be incorporated into AI advancements.
Although the guest list has not yet been released, Bloomberg reports that OpenAI CEO Sam Altman and Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella will be invited, in addition to US Vice President Kamala Harris, who will speak.

Deepfakes, cybersecurity, disinformation, and hazards to democracy are likely to be covered in the discussions, which will include representatives from business, industry, and government. The objective is to assist business executives and technology firms in starting to create strategies for limiting AI dangers.

Considering the speed at which technology is developing, the UK government has previously warned that artificial intelligence technology poses a risk to international stability and could compromise our principles.

The Times previously reported that UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has indicated an interest in establishing a global AI watchdog in London, and The Guardian reported that nations are working on a summit communiqué warning of the risks presented by this AI technology.
