Bilateral agreements on artificial intelligence security signed between Great Britain and the USA

Britain and the US Join Forces in Historic AI Agreement to Address Safety Concerns

The United States and the United Kingdom have signed a historic agreement on artificial intelligence, marking their cooperation in testing and assessing the risks associated with emerging AI models. This bilateral agreement, signed in Washington by British science minister Michelle Donelan and US trade secretary Gina Raimondo, sets a precedent for international cooperation in addressing safety concerns of AI technology.

The collaboration between the UK and US is particularly significant as governments around the world advocate for increased regulation of emerging technologies. The agreement outlines how the two governments will share technical knowledge, information, and talent on AI security. This will enable the UK’s new AI Safety Institute (AISI) and its US counterpart to exchange expertise through secondment of researchers from both countries.

The partnership between AISI and its US counterpart will work together on independently evaluating private AI models developed by companies like OpenAI and Google. This is inspired by the close collaboration between the UK’s Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) and the US National Security Agency on intelligence and security matters. The agreement represents a significant step in addressing safety concerns of AI technology, particularly in light of potential risks such as malicious cyber attacks and biological weapons development.
