US And UK Formally Join Forces To Address AI Security Concerns 

US and UK come together to address the increasing safety issues around artificial intelligence by signing an agreement to establish advanced model testing. Concerns about the impending next-generation versions of artificial intelligence have led to the announcement of a new alliance between the US and the UK in the field of data security. 

Gina Raimondo, the US secretary of commerce, and Michelle Donelan, the UK minister of technology, inked a “memorandum of understanding” in Washington DC for cooperation on the development of sophisticated AI model testing. This follows pledges made at an AI safety meeting in Bletchley Park in November. 

AI is the technology that will define our generation, according to Raimondo. “This partnership will accelerate both of our institutes’ work across the full spectrum to address the risks of our national security concerns and the concerns of our broader society.” 

As part of their official cooperation, the US and UK intend to conduct collaborative testing on a publicly available model and are thinking about looking into possible staff exchanges among the institutes. In an effort to increase international cooperation on AI security, both are actively seeking out similar alliances. 

“This agreement is the first of its kind anywhere in the world,” Donelan declared. She said that If we can master the dangers, AI will become an incredible tool for social good and solve some of humanity’s most pressing problems. But first, we must master the risks. 

US and UK Govt. Agree To Work On AI Safety Together

Since the release of ChatGPT in November 2022, generative AI has generated both excitement and anxieties. It has the ability to generate text, photographs, and videos in accordance with open-ended prompts, which might lead to the demise of certain jobs, disruption of elections, and the eventual overpowering of humans. 

The two nations intend to exchange crucial data regarding the strengths and weaknesses of AI models and systems, as well as technical studies concerning the security and safety of AI. To lessen the dangers of artificial intelligence, Joe Biden issued an executive order in October.  

According to a January proposal from the commerce department, US cloud providers would be required to reveal if foreign corporations are using US data centers to train artificial intelligence models. In February, Britain announced plans to invest over £100 million ($125.5 million) to establish nine new research centres and educate AI authorities.
