Bletchley Park, site of World War 2 codebreaking work, is host of Rishi Sunak's "AI safety summit":
A guest list of around 100 people is expected to include Microsoft president Brad Smith, OpenAI chief executive Sam Altman, Google DeepMind chief Demis Hassabis, and from Meta AI chief Yann LeCun and president of global affairs Nick Clegg. Elon Musk, the tech billionaire who earlier this year formed a new AI start-up called x.ai, has been invited but has not committed to attend, according to people familiar with the matter. Chinese tech groups Alibaba and Tencent are due to attend, as is the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the country’s top state-funded science think-tank, according to the list obtained by the FT. A Chinese government delegation is attending from the Ministry of Science and Technology, according to people familiar with its plans. However, the summit’s select roster of attendees has led to criticism from some organisations and executives outside the tech industry, who feel excluded from the meeting.
