Ukraine has signed the international Bletchley Declaration on the security of artificial intelligence: the document envisages cooperation between governments of different countries in AI security research
The press service of the Ministry of Digital Transformation reports.
The declaration was signed at the AI Safety Summit in the UK. Representatives of 29 governments, including the United States, Australia, the EU, China, Saudi Arabia, and South Korea, attended the event. They also signed a declaration on AI safety.
"We have to follow the global trends of innovation. When it comes to cybersecurity, AI can both significantly increase the security of systems and simplify the process of cyberattacks and make them more successful. It is important to find a balance between regulating this technology without hindering its development," said Deputy Minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine George Dubinsky, who represented Ukraine at the summit.
The Ministry of Digital Transformation said that one of the goals of the declaration is the agreement of countries to develop and implement risk-based AI regulation policies that will help prevent negative consequences.
"At the same time, the summit emphasized that artificial intelligence is a useful technology for economic growth and sustainable development. However, the technology cannot develop without any supervision and requires established game rules," the ministry added.
On October 7, the Ministry of Digital Transformation announced the preparation of AI regulation tools in Ukraine. This is necessary to fulfill Ukraine's future international obligations to the EU and to respect human rights.
