Sunak on AI

Next week the UK will host an AI Safety Summit in Bletchley. In preparation Rishi Sunak delivered a speech this week to set the scene.

Here are some highlights:

  • The UK will fund and create an Institute for AI Safety as well as further investment in super and quantum computing.
  • Capabilities and risks from frontier AI‘ has been released as a discussion paper
  • Despite criticism, China has been invited to join the summit – global risks need all the players at the table.

The main appeal of the speech is one of honesty – being upfront about the risks, but also hopeful of the opportunities.
