Ian Hogarth has just been announced as the Chair of the UK's AI Foundation Model Taskforce. He's the author of the FT article "We must slow down the race to God-like AGI", and seems to take X-risks from AI seriously.

To quote his twitter thread:

And to that end I put out a call to people across the world. If you are an AI specialist or safety researcher who wants to build out state capacity in AI safety and help shape the future of AI policy then get in touch:

We have £100m to spend on AI safety and the first global conference to prepare for. I want to hear from you and how you think you can help. The time is now and we need more people to step up and help.

The google form to leave an expression of interest is here.

Have changed the link :))

The application form is short and includes the following questions:

What are the most important technical projects the UK government needs to do within the next few months to advance AI safety?

What do you want to be doing to drive those projects forward?
