How artificial intelligence is changing the rules of policymaking

What was achieved at the recent AI Safety Summit, hosted by the United Kingdom? 

How do the geopolitics of technology now impact economies and societies? 

And how can governments equip themselves better to handle these complex changes? 

In this episode, senior UK public servant Jonathan Black joins Jennifer Jackett to talk about AI, and the policy responses to it from governments across the globe. 

Jonathan Black is a Heywood Fellow at the Blavatnik School of Government, University of Oxford. Prior to this appointment he was the UK Prime Minister’s representative for the recent AI Safety Summit, G7 and G20 Sherpa and Deputy National Security Advisor.
