So check this out folks, we’ve got some major players in the AI game joining forces with the American and British authorities to put their new artificial intelligence models to the test. OpenAI, Meta, Microsoft, and Google’s DeepMind, just to name a few, are all signing on the dotted line. Now, this agreement ain’t binding by any means, but it’s a step in the right direction.
Now, let me tell you, this all went down during the second day of this massive AI summit hosted by the U.K.’s Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak. And get this, there was another agreement announced the day before, involving 29 countries and the European Union, all pledging to work together and manage the whole AI innovation thing while keeping an eye on the potential risks.
And here’s where it gets interesting. The U.K. is teaming up with Singapore and America’s AI Safety Institute to conduct tests on emerging AI. They’re even putting together an AI risk report, taking cues from the UN’s climate watchdog group. Talk about being thorough, right?
Now, Sunak, the man of the hour, is calling this summit a success, although it’s not clear whether any concrete AI regulations will soon be passed in Britain. But here’s the juicy part: he’s set to have a chat with none other than Elon Musk himself, the co-founder of OpenAI and the brains behind his own AI startup called XAI. I mean, talk about AI heavyweights in one conversation!
In his remarks, Sunak made it a point to say that we shouldn’t freak out about AI, but we should treat it with caution. According to him, this technology poses a risk similar to war or a pandemic. And that’s why he’s all about protecting the people. Hey, gotta give credit where credit is due, right?
