On Wednesday, the UK hosted an AI Safety Summit attended by 28 countries, including the US and China, which gathered to address potential risks posed by advanced AI systems, reports The New York Times. In particular, the declaration refers to what it calls “Frontier AI,” which the document vaguely defines as “Highly capable general-purpose AI models, including foundation models, that could perform a wide variety of tasks-as well as relevant specific narrow AI that could exhibit capabilities that cause harm-which match or exceed the capabilities present in today’s most advanced models.” The US, for its part, has announced a separate American AI Safety Institute, and President Biden recently issued an executive order on AI. The European Union is working on an AI bill to establish regulatory principles and guidelines for specific AI technologies.
