Labour’s Peter Kyle prepares to hold talks on artificial intelligence with tech giants during a visit to Washington

Labour’s shadow technology minister plans to hold a series of meetings with tech giants to discuss AI developments during a visit to the US.

Peter Kyle arrived in Washington, D.C., on Saturday in preparation for a week of discussions with the US government and technology companies, including Microsoft, Amazon, Meta, Google and Apple.

He will also meet others involved in AI development, such as Oracle, Open AI, and Anthropic.

Party officials said the opposition leader would use talks with leading artificial intelligence labs to discuss the potential of emerging technology to improve public services, with plans to use it to speed up cancer screenings and create personalized lesson plans for children.

Kyle, whose summary also includes science, said he has already seen AI tools that he believes could have detected his mother’s lung cancer “earlier,” making potential advances in health care “personal.”

In a Daily Telegraph article in November, the MP for Hove said his mother died 12 years ago, and her illness went undiagnosed for 18 months despite presenting her pain to doctors “numerous times”.

Speaking after his arrival in the US, Kyle said: “New technology is the greatest opportunity we have to restore our public services and grow the economy.

“I’ve seen AI tools that I believe would have helped detect my mother’s cancer earlier.

“It’s personal to me to use this technology in a way that keeps families together longer.

“UK businesses can benefit greatly from the innovation this latest wave of technology can bring.

“The Labor government wants to unleash innovation and give businesses the certainty needed to invest in our country, boost wages and get the economy growing again.”

Labor, which is well ahead of the Conservatives in opinion polls ahead of a potential general election later this year, said it would set up an Office for Regulatory Innovation to speed up existing AI regulations and make safety reporting requirements mandatory for laboratories in the heartland. Innovate with technology.

In November, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak chaired the first global AI summit in Bletchley Park, as world governments look to regulate the technology, which experts have warned could pose a risk to humanity if not effectively controlled.

Andrew Griffiths, the Conservative science minister, said: “Despite attempts to hide their anti-business record and ideas, the truth is that Labor cannot say how they will support businesses to use AI safely while using it to grow and prosper, because they have no plan.
