South Korea, host of Summit, emphasizes need for global cooperation on AI technology

The South Korean science and information technology minister, Lee Jong-Ho, stressed the importance of global cooperation in shaping discussions around AI safety, innovation, and inclusivity at a summit on the technology in Seoul. He highlighted that collaboration is not just an option but a necessity for developing AI safely. The summit, co-hosted with Britain, addressed issues such as job security, copyright, and inequality.

Sixteen tech companies signed an agreement to develop AI safely while 14 other companies pledged to use methods like watermarking to identify AI-generated content and ensure job creation and support for vulnerable groups. These initiatives are aimed at creating a safe environment for the use of AI by the public.

AI experts emphasized the need for companies to prioritize safety over profit when developing AI systems. They highlighted the importance of enforcing rules and setting obligatory safety standards before these systems hit the market. This will prevent potential harm and public backlash associated with unsafe AI systems.

The next summit is expected to focus on greater collaboration on AI safety institutes building on the progress made at the Seoul summit and previous global AI summits in Britain. Officials discussed how state-backed institutes can help regulate the technology while ensuring flexibility in laws and regulations for safe use of AI by the public.
