The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “MI6 chief warns that China’s advances in AI pose a threat to the West” – below is their description.

MI6 needs to become “more open” and work with the private sector to keep pace with adversaries such as China, its chief has said.

In his first public speech since taking up his role in October 2020, Richard Moore, the head of the Secret Intelligence Service, announced a “sea-change in MI6’s culture” of secrecy that will see spies work with technology companies.

“The changing nature of the threats we face requires a greater degree of openness from a modern intelligence agency,” Mr Moore has said.

“There is a paradox in play here – to stay secret, we are going to have to become more open.”
