    Dear colleagues
    All the news about developments at OpenAI over the past week highlights the need for independent oversight of Big Tech and AI companies. 
    I wrote an Open Letter on discussions on the need for UK AI Laws to protect UK citizens.

    I came across this information on the Lords Committee hears from OpenAI, Google DeepMind, Aleph Alpha and regulators on 21st November which  might be of interest to those working in LLMs.
    “The Communications and Digital Committee approaches the end of its public hearings on large language models. The sessions will cover the work of regulators, and views from the world’s leading AI labs on future trends.
    The Committee is looking at large language models and what needs to happen over the next 1–3 years to ensure the UK can respond to their opportunities and risks. 
    Key issues include future trends, how these compare to Government and regulators’ plans, and international implications.
    Possible areas for discussion

    how LLMs will be addressed by regulators over the next three years and the adequacy of work plans;

    whether regulators have sufficient powers and capabilities;

    how regulators will avoid duplication and gaps across their remits.”
