The U.S. and China are holding their first meeting in Geneva on Tuesday as part of the Artificial Intelligence (AI) Dialogue that Presidents Joe Biden and Xi Jinping agreed to at a summit in San Francisco last year. The goal is to reduce the risk of miscalculation and unintended conflict. U.S. officials said the talks would focus on risk and security, with an emphasis on advanced AI systems. The U.S. intends to outline its position on managing AI risks and raise concerns about Chinese AI activities that threaten U.S. national security. The discussion will also focus on global AI risk management. It is not aimed at technical or other cooperation between the two countries.

"Our approach on China remains focused on ‘invest, align and compete’ but we also believe intense competition requires intense diplomacy to reduce the risk of miscalculation and unintended conflict."
