Taiwan's Minister of Digital Affairs Audrey Tang (唐鳳) this week attended a number of events for London Tech Week in the United Kingdom where she engaged in talks with several tech powerhouses regarding artificial intelligence (AI).

At the AI Summit London on Thursday, Tang met with Laurence Moroney, who is the leading AI and machine learning (ML) advocacy at Google, to engage in exchanges and discussions regarding AI, according to a Ministry of Digital Affairs press release.

Topics tackled by the two tech professionals included how to get citizens involved in policies to innovate AI while making the technology safe.

At the summit, Tang shared that Taiwan has already established and amended regulations in the country to respond to problems brought up by generative AI, such as scam, deepfake pornography and even potential election fraud.

Also, Tang said Taiwan's National Institute of Cyber Security is expected to establish an AI evaluation center by the end of 2023 that will work hand in hand with the Trustworthy AI Dialogue Engine developed by Taiwan's National Science and Technology Council to create AI applications that meet the needs of democracy.

Tang also participated in an AI Roundtable where she talked with a number of tech professionals from the U.K.'s Department for Science, Innovation and Technology on topics surrounding the risk of AI. She also exchanged ideas on security policies.

According to Tang, just like other global issues such as pandemics and nuclear warfare, the potential risk of AI is a topic that must be given priority and addressed in a concerted manner.

Tang went on to add that the advancement of AI should not exclusively mirror the perspectives of its creators or any designated population, but should reflect values of openness and fairness as Taiwan is doing, to promote equity when using AI.
