Bletchley Park Summit

GS 3:

Why in NEWS?

  • Organised to discuss on how to manage the catastrophic risks from frontier AI.
  • 28 leading countries have participated at Bletchley Park in the UK.
  • By organising this summit, Britain regains its status as a global tech leader as countries like USA and China have already discussed about measures to mitigate AI attacks on people.

But why only Bletchley Park?

Because, Bletchley Park is the place where German ‘ENIGMA CODE’ was cracked and hastened World War II. This symbolises that Britain has always been a Global Tech Leader. When countries like US or China are stepping their foot in the concerns over AI, the UK P.M. also thought of making a mark in this endeavour.

Concerns raised for Frontier AI:

The entire world is concerned over the unethical use of Frontier AI (Highly capable generative AI). Safety, Security and Trust especially in the field of Cybersecurity, and Biotechnology have raised brows of many tech masters and political leaders as well.

What urged for the meet-up?

Global tech leader such as Elon Musk (founder of Space X) and Steve Wozniak (Co-founder of Apple) have raised concerns over the increasing capture of AI in various fields be it Crypto, Biotechnology, Internal Security or any other market. the Space X founder has said that Al  can lead to EXISTENTIAL RISK for mankind. more than 15000 tech companies have halted their work on  AI development for 6 months to slow down the ‘out of control race’.

Different Countries, Varied Approaches

  • EU suggests for a stringent action to be taken and formulation of the AI Act that classifies AI according to use-case scenarios, based broadly on the degree of invasiveness and risk.
  • The UK is at the other end of the spectrum, with a decidedly “light-touch” approach that aims to foster, and not stifle, innovation in this field.

India’s Stance on dealing with AI

  • The NITI Aayog has published a series of papers on ‘Responsible AI for All’.
  • India was not considering bringing a law or regulating the growth of AI in the country.
  • PM had called for a global framework on the expansion of “ethical” AI tools – actively formulating regulations based on a “risk-based, user-harm” approach. this was done just before the G20 Summit.
  • Digital India Bill that is expected to replace the Information Technology Act, 2000

What demotivates aspirants is the idea that at least 4-5 attempts are a must to qualify UPSC CSE EXAMS. This is absolutely incorrect. It’s true that this exam demands time to prepare but that’s not more than 2 to 3 years. It’s a learning process where you will make multiple mistakes and so, would need time to rectify them too. Most aspirants do not realise this fact and waste their attempts with inadequate preparation, which in turn, demotivates them. So, you need a mentor to guide you in this journey and tell you WHEN TO START and HOW TO START your preparation. Also before knowing what to study an aspirant has to first know WHAT NOT TO STUDY in this era of overflooded information around us. This is where the role of a Mentor becomes all the more important so that you do not waste your crucial time reading unnecessary content.
Aspirants often have a misconception that at least 13-14 hours a day must be given to this exam. Again, this is not true. UPSC preparation is journey of not only gathering knowledge, but also of overall character and personality development. So, if you utilise 13-14 hrs a day only in studying, you won’t get time to interact with the outside world and evolve properly and this wouldn’t help in the training process. Diligent engagement of 5-6 hrs a day would be enough for the preparation and that’s why KAVISH IAS suggests its students to start planning from their graduation only, as regular practice will definitely help you reach your goal.
Many Institutes recommend starting UPSC preparation from 6th standard NCERT books and go through graduation level textbooks, which is not true. Also, the aspirant is prescribed to go through the entire newspaper every day. Reading so much of hefty content on a daily basis is a tedious and boring job to do. Such misconceptions only waste the aspirant’s valuable time and money. Each individual is different and accordingly he/she should be suggested where to start from. Coming to current affairs, news reading and its analysis is a skill that needs to be taught in the beginning, and with time the aspirant can himself decide what to read and how to read. Analysing and jotting down the essentials becomes easy for the student after a few months.
Another myth that students fear is that ‘UPSC IS DIFFICULT AND ONLY IIT OR TOP COLLEGE GRADUATES CAN CRACK IT ’. UPSC is open for graduates from every stream and doesn’t prefer anyone based on his/her background. So if you are willing to dedicate your time in this preparation, you can surely succeed in this exam with a good rank.
