The world’s first global summit on AI safety will take place this week at Bletchley Park in Southern England from Nov 1st to 2nd November, hosted by Britain to explore the dangers of the rapidly expanding technology and initiate a global conversation on how to regulate it.
There would be around 100 guests, including world leaders, tech company executives, academics and nonprofits to grace the grand occasion along with reputable sponsors like OMDIA, Reply, IBM, Italian Trade Agency, Shell, Domino Data Lab, Technology Innovation Institute, Cambridge Consultants, Deloitte, and many more.
Also, the event will be attended by many distinguished guests of honour from various sectors and countries like US Vice-President Kamala Harris, Rishi Sunak, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Antonio Guterres, the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Margrethe Vestager, the Executive Vice President of the European Commission for a Europe Fit for the Digital Age, Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Alphabet and Google, Satya Nadella, the CEO of Microsoft, Andy Jassy, the CEO of Amazon, Jensen Huang, the founder and CEO of Nvidia, Demis Hassabis, the co-founder and CEO of DeepMind, and several others.
Sam Altman, who founded ChatGPT creator OpenAI and Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk will join the event.
The summit’s goal is to initiate a global dialogue on how to regulate AI in the future. There are no global rules that focus on AI safety at the moment, but some governments have begun creating their own regulations. The summit agenda shows that there will be several roundtable talks on the dangers of future advances in tech. Some of the topics are how hackers or terrorists could use AI systems to make weapons or bioweapons, and how the technology could become conscious and cause chaos in the world. The summit to be hosted at Buckinghamshire reflects its significance as it denotes a significant location in the history of computer science development and was once the home of British Enigma codebreaking.
