AI Safety Summit
Today the British government appointed leading experts to spearhead preparations for the first ever international AI safety summit in the UK this year, as Britain invests £13 million in AI healthcare research, seizing the opportunities of AI to grow the economy and cut waiting lists.
- As AI rapidly evolves, we must work with our international allies to ensure that we minimise the risks of this technology, whilst also ensuring that we harness the benefits that AI has to offer.
- That is why the government has appointeded two leading experts in the field who will be rallying leading AI nations, companies and experts ahead of the summit in the autumn. The government also announced £13 million to transform AI healthcare research.
- This will cement Britain's position as a world leader in AI and help us deliver the opportunities of this new technology for people across the UK – from growing the economy to cutting waiting lists.
