The White House has announced what it is calling “the most significant actions ever taken by any government to advance the field of AI safety.”
An executive order from President Biden requires Artificial Intelligence (AI) developers to share safety results with the US government.
It places the U.S at the centre of the global debate on AI governance.
However, this is a position the UK government hoped a summit it is hosting this week would allow it to hold.
The two-day meeting begins on November 1 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.
