Invite China to your AI summit, senior Tory MPs tell Rishi Sunak
Senior Conservative MPs have urged Rishi Sunak to invite China to his flagship artificial intelligence (AI) summit this autumn.
The UK will host the event, the first of its kind as the world seeks to regulate the powerful new technology. Earlier this week the prime ministers technology advisor warned that AI could become powerful enough to kill many humans in only two years time.
On a trip to Washington, Mr Sunak said Britain was "well-placed" to take a leading role on the issue.
Despite the global nature of the risk, No 10 has only said that like-mind countries will be invited, suggesting China will be excluded.
