British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said only governments could tackle the risks posed by AI, a technology he said could make it easier to build chemical or biological weapons, spread fear and, in a worse-case scenario, escape human control.
Representatives of AI companies, political leaders and experts will meet at Bletchley Park – where Britain’s World War Two code-breakers worked – in the south of England on November 1 and 2.
“Get this wrong, and AI could make it easier to build chemical or biological weapons,” Sunak said. “And in the most unlikely but extreme cases, there is even the risk that humanity could lose control of AI completely.”
Around 100 participants at next week’s meeting will discuss subjects including the unpredictable advances of AI and the potential for humans to lose control of it, according to the agenda.
Sunak said China had been invited but he could not guarantee that a representative of the country would attend.
“I can’t say with 100 per cent certainty that China will be there. But I do believe that it’s absolutely the right thing to have invited them,” he said.
