Everyone must work together for Artificial Intelligence

The first concluded UK AI Safety Summit with important advances regarding the future regulation of artificial intelligence. As posted yesterday Excelsior28 governments signed a first-ever global agreement to combat the “catastrophic” risks that technology could present.

Bletchley Park, once the home of World War II code breakers, was the site of various announcements, agreements and disagreements. He The United Kingdom announced that it would invest in an AI supercomputerMeanwhile he Tesla and X boss, Elon Musk, He said on the sidelines of the event that artificial intelligence is “one of the biggest threats to humanity,” even though he has just invested in creating his development company xAI.

Many members of the technology community signed an open letter calling for a spectrum of approaches, from open source to open science, and for scientists, technology leaders and governments to work together. He uk government called it a “world-first” agreement between the signatories, which aims to identify “AI security risks of shared concern” and build “respective risk-based policies in all countries.”

Experts warn that frontier AI, which is the most sophisticated form of technology which is used in generative models like ChatGPThas the “potential to cause serious, even catastrophic, harm, whether deliberate or not, arising from the most significant capabilities of these AI models.”

Bringing together major powers to endorse ethical principles can be considered a success, but the task of producing concrete policies and accountability mechanisms must follow quickly,” said Paul Teather, CEO of AI-based research company AMPLYFI.

“Vague terminology leaves room for misinterpretation, while relying solely on voluntary cooperation is insufficient to generate globally recognized best practices around AI,” he reiterated.

South Korea will launch another “mini-virtual” AI summit in the next six months and France will host the next in-person AI summit next year.

Elon Musk arrived at the summit and remained silent during the talksbut warned about the risks of AI.

We are not stronger or faster than other creatures, but we are more intelligent. And here we are, for the first time in human history, with something that will be much smarter than us.”

Muskwho co-founded the developer ChatGPT OpenAI and launched a new company called xAI, said there should be a “referee” for technology companies, but that regulation should be implemented with caution. “I think what we're trying to do here is... firstly, establish that there should be a referee role, I think there should be. And then, you know, you have to be careful with how regulations are applied, so as not to attack with rules that inhibit the positive side of AI.”


The head of the European Commission, Ursula Von der Leyen, warned that AI carries risks and opportunities and praised how quantum physics led to nuclear energy, but also to social risks such as the atomic bomb. “We are entering a completely different era. In one where machines can act intelligently. My wish for the next five years is that we learn from the past and act quickly.”

Von der Leyen called for a system of objective scientific checks and balances, with an independent scientific community, and AI safety standards that are accepted globally.

He said that the European Union AI law is in the final stages of the legislative process. Also being discussed is the potential for a European AI Office that could deal with the most advanced AI models, with oversight responsibility and would cooperate with similar entities around the world.

The Vice President of the United States, Kamala Harris, said it was necessary to act now to address “the full spectrum” of AI risks and not just “existential” fears about threats from cyberattacks or the development of biological weapons. “There are additional threats that also demand our action, threats that are currently causing harm and that many people also consider existential.”


Meta's President of Global Affairs, Nick Clegg, He said there was “moral panic” over new technologies, indicating that government regulations could face backlash from tech companies.

New technologies always generate hype,” Clegg said. “They often provoke excessive zeal among defenders and excessive pessimism among critics.

I remember the '80s. There was this moral panic about video games. “There was moral panic regarding the radio, the bicycle and the Internet.”

Mark Surman, president and CEO of the Mozilla Foundation linked to Firefoxexpressed concern that the summit was a global platform for private companies to advance their interests.

We have seen time and time again that increasing public access and scrutiny makes technology safer, not more dangerous. The idea that strict and exclusive control of fundamental AI models is the only way to protect us from harm on a societal scale is naïve at best and dangerous at worst.

We are calling on policymakers to invest in a variety of approaches, from open source to open science, in the race to AI safety. “Open, accountable and transparent approaches are critical to keeping us safe in the age of AI,” he added.
