Big Tech’s calls for more regulation offers a chance for them to increase their power
At the World Economic Forum in Davos last week, “tech for good” was one of the key themes on the agenda. Big Tech companies like Microsoft and Google used their airtime to call for more regulation, particularly in the area of artificial intelligence (AI).
It’s a broad term that applies to a set of different technologies such as facial recognition. Over the past couple of years, discussion at Davos has really focused on what impact AI and increasing automation might have on jobs, society, and privacy.
