The UN Security Council will hold its first formal discussion on artificial intelligence (AI) this week in New York.
Governments around the world are now considering how to mitigate the dangers posed by the emergence of artificial intelligence technologies that could transform the global economy and the international security landscape.
The UK chairs the UN Security Council this month, and the country is seeking a global leadership role in AI regulation.
British Foreign Secretary James Cleverley will chair a debate on the risks of artificial intelligence on Tuesday.
In June, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres backed a proposal by some AI technology leaders to create an international AI watchdog like the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
