On Monday, leaders of the G7, the United States and Britain solidified their commitment to the future of artificial intelligence safety, according to Reuters. Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo and Britain’s Technology Secretary Michelle Donelan inked a memorandum of understanding in Washington to mark this new partnership.

In-Person and Virtual Conference

April 23rd to 25th, 2024

Join us for a deep dive into the latest data science and AI trends, tools, and techniques, from LLMs to data analytics and from machine learning to responsible AI.

 

The aim is to spearhead the development of advanced AI model testing techniques, a decision stemming from pledges made at the AI Safety Summit in Bletchley Park last November. “AI is the defining technology of our generation,” Raimondo stated, highlighting the partnership’s role in expediting efforts to mitigate national security risks and broader societal concerns.

The alliance between these two nations underscores a shared recognition of AI’s immense potential and the imperative to navigate its challenges responsibly. Over the last few years, The United States and Britain have been at the forefront of establishing government-led initiatives to safeguard AI’s evolution.

Britain announced plans last October to launch an institute dedicated to the scrutiny and testing of novel AI systems. Similarly, the U.S. disclosed its initiative in November, aiming to evaluate the risks posed by frontier AI models in collaboration with over 200 entities.

 

Central to this partnership is the commitment to conduct joint testing exercises on publicly accessible AI models and potentially facilitate personnel exchanges between safety institutes. This bilateral effort is part of a broader strategy to forge similar agreements globally, enhancing AI safety standards worldwide.

This is the first agreement of its kind anywhere in the world,” Donelan remarked, emphasizing the transformative impact on society that AI will likely have and its capacity to address some of humanity’s most daunting challenges. But Donelan also noted the importance of managing associated risks, privacy, bias, etc., to fully harness AI’s benefits.

So what does this partnership do? Well, it extends to sharing crucial information on AI capabilities, risks, and technical safety and security research. It also aligns with broader efforts, including the Biden administration’s executive order to mitigate AI risks and the U.K.’s investment in research hubs and regulatory training on AI.

In-Person Data Engineering Conference

April 23rd to 24th, 2024 – Boston, MA

At our second annual Data Engineering Summit, Ai+ and ODSC are partnering to bring together the leading experts in data engineering and thousands of practitioners to explore different strategies for making data actionable.

 

This partnership comes weeks after the UN’s resolution on AI safety. In a unanimous vote, member states of the UN voted to begin addressing concerns surrounding AI safety.
