The UN Security Council set to meet in New York for its inaugural AI discussion, prompted by Britain’s push for global talks on AI’s influence on peace and security. Nations globally ponder ways to address risks tied to AI’s emergence, capable of altering the world economy and reshaping international security.
Britain is currently responsible for presiding over the United Nations Security Council during this month, with a focus on assuming a prominent position in global AI regulation.
On Tuesday, James Cleverly, the British Foreign Secretary, will lead the discussion.
In June, U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres supported an idea put forth by certain top-level figures in the AI industry to establish a global AI oversight organization similar to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
