๐ŸŒ The UK is hosting an international AI safety summit on 1โ€”2 November at Bletchley Park. This event promises to gather world leaders, AI experts, and industry-shaping AI safety discussions. While attendees and specific topics remain undisclosed, it solidifies the UKโ€™s significance in AI safety discussions.

This presents an opportunity to engage with national governments to convince them to send delegates, propose experts to attend the summit itself, and of course to protest at the summit.

๐Ÿ”ฌ Our latest research

๐Ÿง‘โ€๐Ÿคโ€๐Ÿง‘ We commissioned an opinion poll with Roy Morgan (an Australian polling company) on perception of AI in Australia. A sizeable majority of 57% of Australians believe artificial intelligence (AI) creates more problems than it solves. Every fifth Australian anticipates the risk of human extinction from AI within two decades.
