Leicester entrepreneur Bosun Tijani has been speaking on stage at the world’s first AI Safety Summit in Milton Keynes.
Hosted by the British government, the landmark conference invited more than a hundred artificial intelligence experts, civil society organisations, businesses and world leaders – including US Vice President Kamala Harris. Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said the purpose of the event is to consider the risks of AI and discuss how they could be mitigated.
Bosun Tijani is the technology minister in Nigeria and spoke about the need to explore the tech for the good of humanity. Nigeria was also one of the 28 nations to sign the world’s first agreement on responsible AI, called the Bletchley Declaration.
It was an honour to speak at the @AISafetySummit 2023 in the UK earlier today alongside other ministers of ICT. The summit is a gathering of global stakeholders including governments, leading AI companies, experts in research and civil society groups.
