In an exciting turn of events, the US and UK have inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to collaborate on the science of AI safety.


This partnership, a follow-through on commitments made at the AI Safety Summit last November, aims to develop robust evaluations for AI models and systems.


US Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo and UK Technology Secretary Michelle Donelan signed the MOU, marking a significant step towards aligning their scientific approaches to AI safety. The partnership will enable the US and UK AI Safety Institutes to work in unison, accelerating the development of safety evaluations and guidance for AI.


The plan is to build a common approach to AI safety testing and share capabilities to effectively tackle emerging risks. The Institutes aim to conduct at least one joint testing exercise on a publicly accessible model, and are even considering personnel exchanges to tap into a collective pool of expertise.
