Australia was one of the 28 signatories to the Bletchley Declaration, which emerged from the global AI Safety Summit, where heads of state, senior ministers, AI leaders and other experts from across the globe congregated to set an international framework for developing safe AI. The Declaration provides that the agenda for addressing frontier AI risk will focus on:
- identifying AI safety risks of shared concern, building a shared scientific and evidence-based understanding of these risks, and sustaining that understanding as capabilities continue to increase, in the context of a wider global approach to understanding the impact of AI in our societies.
- building respective risk-based policies across our countries to ensure safety in light of such risks, collaborating as appropriate while recognising our approaches may differ based on national circumstances and applicable legal frameworks. This includes, alongside increased transparency by private actors developing frontier AI capabilities, appropriate evaluation metrics, tools for safety testing, and developing relevant public sector capability and scientific research.
