28 countries and the EU sign first-ever agreement at UK AI summit
♨️News - The first day of the UK AI Safety Summit witnessed a historic milestone as 28 countries, including the U.S., and China, along with the EU, signed an agreement aimed at boosting global cooperation for the safe development of AI.
The agreement, called 'The Bletchley Declaration,' focuses on identifying risks posed by advanced AI models through global scientific collaboration and creating cross-border policies to manage those risks. It also encourages transparency and accountability from those developing advanced AI models.
In an accompanying statement, Britain stated that the declaration helps achieve summit goals by promoting shared understanding and responsibility for addressing risks and opportunities of advanced AI models.
🎙️What did other global leaders have to say? Britain's King Charles III delivered a video address during the summit, emphasizing the need for urgent, unified action to address AI risks. Meanwhile, billionaire tech entrepreneur Elon Musk advocated for an oversight framework, suggesting that it would act as an "independent referee," monitoring top AI companies.
U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris urged swift action on various AI risks, highlighting the need to address real-world harms in addition to existential threats. And China's Vice Minister of Technology, expressed China's commitment to improving communication on AI regulation with all stakeholders for the benefit of all.
Moreover, for further discussions on AI risks, South Korea will hold a "mini virtual" AI Summit in six months, followed by an in-person summit hosted by France next year.
China's new AI chip leaves NVIDIA and other U.S. competitors behind
☕News - Chinese scientists have developed a chip which outperforms current high-performance AI chips in tasks like image recognition and autonomous driving. The chip is notably faster and more energy-efficient.
This achievement highlights China's ongoing efforts to catch up with the U.S. in the AI race, despite restrictions imposed by the White House that limit China's access to technology, including advanced chips.
🤔How did they do this though? The chip, named the ACCEL (All-Analogue Chip Combining Electronics and Light), uses tiny particles of light known as photons to speed up computer processing and data transmission. Basically, because photons travel at the speed of light, they can carry and transmit data incredibly fast making the computer run faster.
In traditional electronic chips, data is transferred using electrical signals, which have limitations in terms of speed. But because this chip is designed to take advantage of the fundamental properties of light, it is faster and more efficient. This was confirmed by lab tests that found the new chip to perform 3,000 times faster than most widely used commercial AI chips, such as Nvidia's A100. It was also found to be super energy-efficient, using 4 million times less energy.
🤓Have there been any other developments? Another notable development was Chinese firm Deemos' new GenAI model Rodin Gen-1. This new model can turn text into detailed 3D models, and has produced impressive results so far – like a wooden treasure chest, a spaceship, and an axe.
Study finds AI is twice as accurate as biopsy in diagnosing cancer
🏥News - A new study by the Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust and the Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) found that AI is two times more accurate than a biopsy in evaluating the aggressiveness of specific cancers.
The study focused on the AI algorithm's accuracy in assessing the aggressiveness of sarcomas, a rare type of cancer that emerges in the body's connective tissues like fat, muscle, and nerves. The researchers used CT scans from 170 patients with this type of cancer to train the AI. Then, they tested the AI on 89 patients in Europe and the US.
🕵️♂️What were the key findings?
The AI correctly graded how aggressive the tumor was likely to be in 82% of cases. In comparison, biopsies were only accurate 44% of the time.
Additionally, the AI successfully distinguished between the two most common types of sarcomas 84% of the time, while radiologists were unable to tell the difference in 35% of cases.
👨⚕️Why is this important? According to the World Health Organization, cancer takes 10 million lives globally each year. By providing clinicians with a more precise way to grade tumors, AI can help identify high-risk patients faster for prompt treatment, while also reducing unnecessary treatments for low-risk cases.

🤔Did you know?
The top five countries or regions for AI engineers are the USA, Europe (the UK and Germany in particular), China, Canada, and India.
Low-code and no-code AI platforms are becoming increasingly popular in 2023, making it possible for people to customize AI applications with simple text or voice commands without needing any coding experience.
An Artificial intelligence expert, Dr. David Levy in an interview predicted that human-robot marriages will be legal by the year 2050.
