Artificial Intelligence may be one of the most transformative technologies that humanity has ever witnessed. The current wave of AI advancement presents both incredible new opportunities in human creativity, understanding and intelligence and potentially new safety, security and privacy consequences if not built responsibly. Today, and in the future, AI will play a central role in our societies and democracies worldwide. To ensure we have safe and secure democratic societies, we cannot afford to halt AI innovation.
