The Centre for Emerging Technology and Security (CETaS) at The Alan Turing Institute have published a new research report assessing risks to safety and security from The Rapid Rise of Generative AI. The report is based on consultation with over 50 experts from a broad range of sectors, to produce the most comprehensive study to date on the threats that generative AI may pose to national security through the potential amplification of digital, physical and political security risks. The report calls for a shift in culture from one which only considers malicious threats to a new multi-layered, socio-technical approach to system evaluation; one that recognises and addresses the broad range of unintentional or incidental security risks that may result from generative AI. The report sets out a robust framework of suggested policy actions and recommendations to address these threats.
