A new report co-authored by Tony Blair and William Hague warns that artificial intelligence (AI) could pose the UK's most significant policy challenge ever. The former prime minister and Conservative party leader emphasise the need for urgent action to prevent the UK from falling behind rival powers such as the US. The report recommends policy measures such as publicly owned datasets to support the development of responsible AI systems, along with the creation of a national laboratory to research and test safe AI, with the aim of becoming an international AI regulator. Overall, the report highlights the need for sustainable AI development and planning for the societal changes it will bring.
In related news, current Prime Minister Rishi Sunak spoke at the launch of the tenth London Tech Week, urging technology leaders to seize the opportunities and challenges of AI, saying that the "UK must act quickly if we want to retain our position as one of the world’s tech capitals."
