On September 19, the Center for International Security and Strategy (CISS) of Tsinghua University and the Brookings Institution held the 2nd meeting of the Terminology Working Group on Artificial Intelligence (AI) via video link. Experts from the two sides discussed the AI terminological framework and entries and exchanged views on the 8th round of the US-China Dialogue on AI and International Security.
In this Meeting, the experts first exchanged opinions on the 25 overlapping entries in the terminological framework. They agreed to continue to communicate on the interpretation of the entries, determine the basic principles of the joint glossary, and release the US-China joint glossary in the form of academic results or research reports thereafter.
Finally, the two sides discussed matters related to the upcoming 8th round of the US-China Dialogue on AI and International Security and agreed to include the topic of international AI governance in the agenda setting, focusing on the international cooperation mechanism for AI security governance.
On September 10, CISS held the 6th seminar for Chinese experts on the “AI and International Security” project. Participating experts reviewed and summarized the seven rounds of the US-China Dialogue on AI and International Security, and exchanged views on the results of the previous dialogues and the future promotion of the project. According to the experts, as AI governance has become an important topic in global governance, major powers and multilateral or bilateral organizations such as the United Nations have stepped up their research on AI governance. China and the U.S. experts can expand cooperation, carry out cooperation and exchanges on the topic of AI security governance on the basis of continuing in-depth dialogues on exploring the potential risks and challenges of AI, and continuously strengthen the communication of governance frameworks, standards, and norms.
