A document on the security of artificial intelligence, signed by delegations from the three superpowers and a large number of regional players at a summit in Britain, get The name “Bletchley Announcement” comes from the location of the event, Bletchley Park Mansion, where Alan Turing cracked the Enigma code 70 years ago.

The text is full of strong statements: AI offers “incredible opportunities” to promote peace and prosperity, but the risks that come with its development, particularly in the areas of cybersecurity and biotechnology, are quickly taken into account. should be addressed, and advanced intelligence “plays a particular threat to humanity” and “has the potential to cause catastrophic harm intentionally or accidentally.” Pledge to cooperate in neutralizing them through. Good intentions are evaluated by Roman Dushkin, General Director of the artificial intelligence developer company A-Z Expert:

It is noteworthy that the document on the need to regulate AI does not even indicate the rules of such regulation. The parties signed on in vague terms, making a number of beautiful statements – for example, billionaire Elon Musk warned on the sidelines of the summit about the emergence of entities that “will be much smarter than the smartest people” and which “It is not clear how to control” – and agreed to meet in six months. German Klimenko, Chairman of the Board of the Digital Economy Development Fund, discussed the importance of the event:

Still, at least the sheer number of people willing to sign up against all the good artificial intelligence and all the bad can’t fail to impress. The signatories – ranging from the United States, China and the European Union to Japan, India, Turkey, Brazil and the United Arab Emirates – represent 60% of the world’s population and nearly 90% of global GDP.

The next AI Safety Summit – perhaps without Asimov’s Three Laws of Robotics, but perhaps with at least some real regulation – will end The following spring in South Korea, then six months later in France. Unless, of course, the countries are ruled by our new power overlords.
