China Accepts Invitation to the First Ever Global AI Summit Hosted by UK

“No reasonable person expects China to abide by anything agreed to at this kind of summit,” says UK’s former Prime Minister Liz Truss in response to the invitation to China.

British Deputy Prime Minister Oliver Dowden has confirmed that China will take part in the UK’s global AI summit scheduled for next week. 

Chinese officials have only received invitations for two days of the summit, which will be held on November 1-2, and not the second-day meeting, which is focused on AI safety and security risks.

The invitation to China has triggered a strong negative response, with figures like former British Prime Minister Liz Truss advocating for China’s exclusion. Concerts have been raised regarding Beijing’s utilization of AI for state control and national security.

In a letter addressed to the current Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, Truss stated, “No reasonable person expects China to abide by anything agreed to at this kind of summit.”

However, Sunak, who extended the invitation to China, has defended this decision. He asserts that involving all major AI powers is indispensable for developing a robust AI strategy. 

Sunak’s decision to include China in the UK global AI summit was embraced by Arati Prabhakar, U.S. President Joe Biden’s top science adviser. She underscored the importance of fostering a global conversation on the matter.
