New AI Safety Partnership Between the US and Britain: An Analysis of the Memorandum of Understanding

The partnership between the United States and Britain is set to focus on the science of artificial intelligence (AI) safety. This new collaboration comes in response to growing concerns about upcoming next-generation versions of AI, with Gina Raimondo, the US commerce secretary, and Michelle Donelan, the British technology secretary, signing a memorandum of understanding in Washington to work together on advanced AI model testing.

The agreement aims to accelerate the work of both institutes across various aspects to address national security concerns and societal issues. As a defining technology of our generation, AI has raised both excitement and fears about its impact on society. The Biden administration signed an executive order in October while the commerce department proposed regulations for US cloud companies regarding the training of AI models in January. Meanwhile, Britain has pledged over £100 million to launch new research hubs and educate AI regulators on the technology.

The formal agreement includes plans for joint testing exercises on publicly accessible models and potential personnel exchanges between the institutes of both countries. The partnership also seeks to establish similar partnerships with other nations to promote AI safety worldwide. Through this collaboration, both countries aim to exchange crucial information on AI capabilities and risks, as well as conduct technical research on AI safety and security.
