As an AI summit on rapidly advancing technology hosted by South Korea concluded on Wednesday, the nation’s minister of science and information technology declared that international collaboration is essential to guaranteeing the successful development of artificial intelligence.

As a worldwide AI summit on quickly developing technology organized by South Korea came to an end on Wednesday, the minister of science and information technology for that country stated that cooperation among all nations is necessary to ensure the effective growth of AI.

On Wednesday, the co-hosted AI summit in Seoul by Britain and 16 tech companies covered issues including inequality, copyright, and job security. The day before, the corporations had signed a voluntary pact to develop AI safely.

On Wednesday, fourteen corporations, including Alphabet (GOOGL.O.), signed a separate pledge. In order to guarantee the creation of jobs and assistance for socially vulnerable people, Google, Microsoft (MSFT.O.), OpenAI, and six Korean companies will employ techniques including watermarking to help identify AI-generated material.

“The Seoul summit has further shaped AI safety talks and added discussions about innovation and inclusivity,” stated Lee Jong-Ho, South Korea’s Minister of Science and ICT (information and communication technologies). Lee added that he anticipates discussions at the next AI summit to include more collaboration on AI safety institutes. “Cooperation is not an option; it is a necessity,” said Lee.

The first-ever global AI summit took place in November in Britain, and the next in-person meeting is scheduled for France, most likely in 2025.

On Wednesday, ministers and officials from a number of nations talked about how state-backed AI safety institutions may collaborate to help govern the technology.

Though some argued that regulations needed to be strictly enforced, AI specialists applauded the initial efforts taken to begin regulating the technology.

“We need to move past voluntary… the people who are affected should be setting the rules via governments,” stated Francine Bennett, Director of the Ada Lovelace Institute, which focuses on artificial intelligence.

According to Max Tegmark, President of the Future of Life Institute, an organization that has been vocal about the hazards associated with AI systems, AI services should be demonstrated to meet mandatory safety requirements before being released onto the market. This will help companies balance profit with safety and avoid any potential public reaction to unanticipated harm.

Laws, according to South Korean Science Minister Lee, tend not to keep up with the rapid evolution of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies.

“But for safe use by the public, there need to be flexible laws and regulations in place.”
