Apple CEO Urges Caution As AI Stays in Spotlight

Tim Cook acknowledged the huge potential of AI and stated that his company has already integrated relevant technologies into its services, including iPhone and Apple Watch crash and fall-detection detection systems. He also said that Apple will implement artificial intelligence on a very thoughtful basis.

FTC Chairman Lina Khan stated the need for immediate measures to regulate the process of AI development and its implementation in other spheres of life. According to her, in the case of the right political choice, the United States, rejected the business models of a race to the bottom and monopoly control, that blocking the possibility of creating products of higher quality and creating zero prospects for the implementation of major ideas of a new level, can continue to be the home of world-leading technology

A joint April statement by the Civil Rights Division of the US Department of Justice, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), the FTC, and the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) states that any decisions made by artificial intelligence must comply with the norms of the legislative framework. This statement also emphasizes that the existing legal system applies to the use of automated systems and innovative technologies on the same principle as in the case of other practices.
