The UK government on Wednesday published recommendations for the artificial intelligence industry, outlining a comprehensive approach to regulating the technology.
In a white paper to be submitted to Parliament, the Department for Science, Innovation and Technology (DSIT) will outline the principles it wants companies to follow.
They are: security, stability. transparency and explanation, fairness, accountability and governance. Rather than introducing new regulations, the UK government is calling on regulators to implement existing regulations and inform companies of their obligations under the white paper.
He has delegated to the Department of Health and Safety, the Equality and Human Rights Commission and the Competition and Markets Authority. The specific authorities should come up with “tailored approaches that match the way artificial intelligence will be used. Over the next twelve months, regulators should issue practical guidance to agencies, more tools and resources, such as risk assessment templates, to determine how to apply these principles,” the government says.
"When parliamentary time permits, legislation could be introduced to ensure that regulators consider all principles consistently."
What does all of this mean?
Technology took us by surprise. Humanity was not ready for advanced AI models and now they are running to catch up. Each of its kind:
Google runs to develop its own model, as he saw the game lost after the launch of OpenAI's ChatGPT, the technology leaders express their concerns (*) with open letters, and governments are trying to take it to the regulatory authorities.
The launch of ChatGPT is not a mere technological innovation but the end of an era.
It reminds me of when they told me that one day we would read the newspapers for free and I didn't believe it. So we managed to fill the internet with ads, spam, scams and misinformation in a very few years, because there was no original context.
Years after the launch of the internet it is safe to say that privacy no longer exists, no matter how hard they try to pick up the slack.
What will happen to artificial intelligence?
* Elon Musk contributed significantly to the seed funding of OpenAI, a non-profit artificial intelligence research company, along with others from Silicon Valley in 2015. Musk sat on the company's board and even shared its chairmanship with Sam Altman. However, in 2018, Musk left the team amid tensions surrounding the company's presidency.
Now Mr. Musk is worried about the future of humanity. I'd like to see what would happen if he were the CEO of OpenAI.
