Britain will host the world’s first artificial intelligence (AI) security summit later this year and Rishi Sunak will discuss with US President, Joe Biden, technologies at the meeting they will have today in Washington, the British Prime Minister announced yesterday, Wednesday, from the US capital.

Artificial intelligence has an incredible power to transform people’s lives for the better, but they need to make sure that it is developed and used in complete safety, Sunak said on the sidelines of his visit to the White House, where he is expected to meet with the US President today.

The summit is expected to be held next autumn and will bring together countries that have a similar approach to lay the groundwork for an arrangement, a spokesman for the British Prime Minister clarified.

The summit will examine the risks of artificial intelligence and discuss how they can be mitigated through coordinated action internationally, the British government said in a statement, which did not specify a date.

Biden and Sunak, who will meet today for the fourth time in as many months, will work to coordinate their approaches to critical and emerging technologies, aiming to strengthen their economic security, British and US officials said.

Sunak plans to have extensive talks with Biden about the British-US relationship and on ways for the two countries to work together to strengthen their economies and consolidate their joint leadership in the technologies of the future, the British government also noted.

Some governments are looking at ways to mitigate the risks of the emerging technology, which has seen a boom in investment and popularity among consumers lately following the launch of OpenAI’s ChatGPT app.

Among them is China, where the government is seeking to introduce artificial intelligence regulations, according to billionaire Elon Musk, who met with Chinese officials during his recent trip to the country.

Regulators worldwide are trying to draw up rules for the use of generative artificial intelligence, which can generate text and images, and its impact has been compared by its devotees to the arrival of the internet.
