Elon Musk is set to make an appearance at a high-profile summit on artificial intelligence taking place in the UK. The summit, hosted at Bletchley Park, aspires to convene leading AI experts and global leaders to engage in discussions regarding the potential risks associated with artificial intelligence.
UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has announced his intention to conduct a live interview with Elon Musk immediately following Thursday’s event. The summit has attracted an impressive lineup of attendees, including US Vice-President Kamala Harris and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen.
In addition to Elon Musk, it has been revealed that Sam Altman from Open AI and Nick Clegg from Meta will also be participating in the gathering. The event will be graced by several other prominent figures from the tech industry. Notably, Yoshua Bengio, a pioneering figure in the field of AI, has confirmed his presence at the event.
In a social media post on Elon Musk’s platform, X (formerly known as Twitter), Prime Minister Sunak shared the news: “In conversation with Elon Musk. After the AI Safety Summit. Thursday night on X.” Recent advancements in AI technology have been hailed as both revolutionary and potentially perilous, posing concerns about their impact on various aspects of society, including job displacement and the proliferation of disinformation.
Just days ago, President Joe Biden signed an executive order mandating that AI developers must share safety-related findings with the US government. Elon Musk, known for his involvement in AI development through companies like Tesla and Open AI, may advocate for even more stringent measures in the US and other countries to address the challenges posed by artificial intelligence.
