Global powers unite: AI poses 'catastrophic' risk, sparks international cooperation.

The UK, US, EU, Australia, and China have signed the Bletchley declaration, acknowledging the potentially catastrophic risks posed by artificial intelligence (AI). Twenty-eight governments agreed to collaborate on AI safety research during the AI safety summit hosted by the British government. The declaration recognizes the potential harm stemming from advanced AI systems and emphasizes the need for collective global efforts in addressing these risks. UK Technology Secretary Michelle Donelan highlighted the importance of collectively examining risks around frontier AI. The diplomatic success marks a step toward global unity, with South Korea and France set to host future AI summits. However, international consensus on global AI regulations remains elusive.
