UK PM Rishi Sunak Considers Global AI Watchdog With London Headquarters

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak may suggest setting up a global artificial intelligence (AI) watchdog with a London headquarters to keep tabs on potential threats posed by the technology, according to a UK media report on Saturday.

The Times reports that the British prime minister is debating establishing a global AI organization in London. To collaborate on monitoring AI, Rishi Sunak and US Vice President Joe Biden will meet on Monday at the White House.

One of the ideas being explored at Downing Street is the creation of a global AI authority in London that would be modelled after the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which has its headquarters in Vienna.

India is one of the 176 countries that make up the IAEA, which was founded in 1957 and monitors the use of nuclear energy, encourages safe practices, and ensures that it is not utilized for military reasons.

According to a British politician, the UK would be "the best place" in the world for any new organization.

The story cited a government source as stating, “The Prime Minister is very alive to the need for international alignment on the approach to AI as the technology evolves to ensure we can benefit from the opportunities but manage the risks.”

The European Union (EU) is working to develop the Artificial Intelligence Act, which tries to take a harsh stance on oversight of the industry and its effects. The US is reportedly thinking about regulating AI technology as well.
