Following US Vice President Kamala Harris’s meeting with the CEOs of leading tech companies, including Microsoft, Alphabet, and OpenAI, DW Business discussed AI regulation with Prof. Yesha Sivan.
The White House warned the world’s top AI developers of their ‘moral and legal’ responsibilities’ to ensure the safety of their products.
