Microsoft President Brad Smith calls for clarity on AI regulation: Details

Microsoft President Brad Smith on Friday reiterated the need for “real clarity” about the goals and principles of AI regulation, calling for a “regulation draft” that requires action at the private, national and global levels. People want to be able to trust this new technology, AI, to remain under human control, he said.

“You’ve seen too many sci-fi movies where the opposite was true. And while we’re creating something that feels like part of science fiction, that’s what businesses and regulators need to focus on,” Smith said at the B20 Summit India 2023.

Speaking at a session on AI for Business and Society: Opportunity and Regulation, Smith, who is also Microsoft vice chairman, emphasized the need for draft regulation by governments and private sectors around the world.

“That means some of these principles are applied at the application level, some at the model level, and some at the cloud or data center level,” he said.

Part of this plan needs to be implemented by ensuring that those deploying AI in businesses need to know who their customers are and how they are being deployed.

“That means there’s really a focus on knowing what cloud is being served and a focus on knowing the content that’s being created and specifically if it’s being created by AI,” he said.

This “draft regulation” will require action at the private sector level, including setting standards at the national and global levels, Smith said, adding, “We need to figure out how they connect.”
