The UK is hosting a global gathering on artificial intelligence and will participate in the WWII code breakers.
The summit will take place on November 1st and 2nd in Bletchley Park, the place in Milton Keynes where the mathematician Alan Turing cracked Nazi Germany’s Enigma code.
Executives from technology companies, government officials from different countries, and scientists from different industries will come together to examine the potential risks arising from the implementation of artificial intelligence (AI) in technology and society and discuss how these potential risks can be mitigated without hampering development and innovation.

“Britain has long been the home of change and future technologies, so there is no better place for the event than at Bletchley Park,” Sunak said.
“In order to fully exploit the extraordinary possibilities of artificial intelligence, We need to address the risks to ensure it develops safely in the coming years,” he added.
