A group of influential members of parliament (MPs) in the United Kingdom have advised the government to collaborate with democratic allies to address the potential misuse of artificial intelligence (AI), emphasizing London’s aim to be a key player in advancing the emerging technology.

On Aug. 31, the Science, Innovation and Technology Committee (SITC), an advisory body to the government, recommended in a report that Britain aligns with similar nations sharing democratic values. This collaboration aims to collectively safeguard against actors, whether state-affiliated or not, who seek to misuse AI for their objectives.
