The UK AI Safety Institute released its AI Safety Testing Platform as open source on an MIT licence and CEO, Amanda Brock discusses why open sourcing the platform is a canny move, and considers the difference between using a tech tool and legislation to solve a digital challenge in this podcast with Richard Simon.

Keynote at The DEVOPS Conference Global – London, on March 2024:
Will opening AI destroy open source software?

Nobody can escape AI. It has those concerned with existential risk in a tizzy and the rest of the world working out how it will impact our jobs and businesses. All difficult to work out without actually understanding what AI is capable of and what its impact is.

This talk focuses on:

– What is open source?
– What is AI openness?
– What are the risks and benefits of opening up AI and, equally, the risks of trying to close it?
– How is AI impacting society as a whole, particularly open source?
– And where is this all going?
