The US declares “strongest global action yet” over AI security

 

Announced are what the White House claims to be “the most significant actions ever taken by any government to advance the field of AI safety.”

President Biden has issued an executive order mandating that AI developers provide the US government with safety results.

It centers the worldwide conversation on AI governance around the United States.

But the UK government anticipated that by hosting a conference this week, it would be able to maintain this stance.

The two-day meeting begins on 1 November at Bletchley Park. It has been prompted by concerns that the rapid advance of AI systems could lead to problems such as the development of more deadly bio-weapons and more paralysing cyber attacks.

The tech entrepreneur and AI expert Gary Marcus told the BBC the US announcement seemed more ambitious in its scope.

“Biden’s executive order sets a high initial bar. The executive order is broad, focusing on both current and long-term risks, with some – though probably not enough – teeth,” he said.

“The UK summit seems to have greatly narrowed its focus, primarily focusing around the long-term risk, with not enough focus on the here and now, and it’s just not clear how much with teeth will come out of it, or what authority it really has.”

Alex Krasodomski, senior research associate at Chatham House, told the BBC the executive order showed the US considered itself the leader in terms of how to address such threats.

In a statement, White House Deputy Chief of Staff Bruce Reed said the US had issued “the strongest set of actions any government in the world has ever taken on AI safety, security, and trust”.

The measures include

  • Creating new safety and security standards for AI, including measures that require AI companies to share safety test results with the federal government
  • Protecting consumer privacy, by creating guidelines that agencies can use to evaluate privacy techniques used in AI
  • Helping to stop AI algorithms discriminate and creating best practices on the appropriate role of AI in the justice system
  • Creating a program to evaluate potentially harmful AI related healthcare practices and creating resources on how educators can responsibly use AI tools
  • Working with international partners to implement AI standards around the world.

The Biden administration is also taking steps to beef up its AI workforce. From today, workers with AI expertise can find relevant openings in the federal government on AI.gov.

Does this undermine the UK gathering?

Mr Krasodomski said the order was “really important”, but one that “doesn’t necessarily run in-line with the UK’s objectives and aims for the summit”.

“The UK summit is referenced in the executive order. But it’s mentioned under the heading of ‘advancing American leadership abroad’ – indicating that the US very clearly knows that it is the big player here alongside China but more precisely, it is the US companies that are really driving forward,” he said.

Mr Krasodomski added: “It’s difficult to put together a small, highly technical summit but I think clearly if this technology is going to have significant global impact there’s going to be there have to be a ton of other kinds of work and engagement with countries around the world”, he said.

US Vice President Kamala Harris and top executives from the US tech giants are arriving in the UK this week to discuss AI safety at the UK government’s AI Summit, which it has billed as a “world first”.

The summit, hosted by Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, will focus on growing fears about the implications of so-called frontier AI. President of the EU Commission Ursula von der Leyen and UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres will also be in attendance.

The UK is determined to position itself as a global leader in the space of trying to minimise the risks posed by this powerful technology.

But the EU is in the process of passing an AI act, China has already devised a number of strict AI rules and and now the US has issued this order.

On top of that, according to the Reuters news agency, the Group of Seven (G7) industrial countries are reportedly agreeing a code of conduct for companies developing advanced AI systems.

All that activity raises the question of how much will actually be left up for discussion at Bletchley Park this week.
