At the summit, Musk strongly emphasized the need to regulate AI to ensure its safety. AI has come a long way in recent years, and it’s only getting more advanced. It’s essential to ensure that it’s being developed in a way that doesn’t put people at risk.Musk called attention to the need for regulatory bodies to oversee public safety, as done for inventions such as aircraft, cars, and medicine. AI is no different. It’s an advanced technology that has the potential to be a risk to people, and we need to make sure that it’s being developed safely and responsibly.
