The United States and China are scheduled to meet in Geneva on Tuesday to discuss AI. American officials have stated that Washington’s policies will not be compromised as they explore ways to lower the hazards connected with this emerging technology.

Tuesday marks the U.S.-China meeting on AI in Geneva, and American officials have made it clear that Washington’s policies will not be negotiable as the two countries discuss how to reduce the risks associated with this developing technology.

To lessen misunderstandings between the two competitors, President Joe Biden’s administration has made an effort to interact with China in a number of areas. In April, in Beijing, China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi and U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken discussed artificial intelligence (AI) and decided to have their first official bilateral talks on the subject.

China and Russia have been pressured by the State Department to align with American claims that only human beings, not robots, would decide when to use nuclear weapons.

This is the inaugural gathering of its sort. When asked if the United States will give the subject of nuclear weapons top priority, a senior administration official told reporters before the meeting, “We expect to have a discussion of the full range of risks, but wouldn’t prejudge any specifics at this point.”

The individual said that the meetings will enable Washington to express its concerns directly because of China’s rapid deployment of AI capabilities across the civilian, military, and national security sectors, which frequently jeopardizes the security of the United States and its allies.

“To be absolutely clear, the goal of the negotiations with Beijing is not to further technical collaboration in any way or to work together on frontier research in any area. Furthermore, the official stated, “We do not negotiate our technology protection policies.”

The White House National Security Council (NSC) said on Monday that members of the U.S. delegation will include representatives from the State, Commerce, and White House departments.

According to Reuters, in order to protect the technology from nations like China and Russia, the Biden administration intends to impose restrictions on proprietary AI models built in the United States that underpin well-known chatbots like ChatGPT.

According to a second U.S. official briefing journalists, Beijing and Washington are vying to create AI regulations, but they also intend to investigate the possibility of some regulations being “embraced by all countries.”

“We certainly don’t see eye to eye… on many AI topics and applications, but we believe that communication on critical AI risks can make the world safer,” added the second official.

The discussions with representatives from China’s Foreign Ministry and state planner, the National Development and Reform Commission, will be facilitated by NSC official Tarun Chhabra and Seth Center, the State Department’s acting special envoy for critical and emerging technology.

Majority Leader of the US Senate Chuck Schumer said that once he issues proposals in the upcoming weeks to address the risks posed by AI, piecemeal legislation will be implemented.

He has noted Washington’s need to take the lead in developing regulations surrounding the quickly developing technology as a result of competition with China and its differing ambitions for AI, including spying and face recognition applications.

Chinese officials have been hammering home the point that the nation must have its own “controllable” AI system.
