Brad Smith, President of Microsoft, underscores the benefits of regulating AI in his address to a Brussels audience, reflecting his previous stance in Washington. Microsoft’s five-point blueprint for AI governance, including safety frameworks and academic access, aligns with the EU’s proposed legislation, and Smith calls for collaboration among key nations.

Why it matters: With the European Union pioneering the AI Act, CIOs need to stay informed and engaged as it sets a precedent for AI regulation globally, shaping the rules and standards that organizations will have to adhere to when implementing AI technologies.

  • The repeated emphasis on regulating AI underscores the growing concern among industry leaders and policymakers regarding the ethical and societal implications of advanced technologies, prompting collaborative efforts to establish comprehensive frameworks that balance innovation with accountability.
  • The European Union’s AI Act reflects a pioneering effort to proactively address the challenges posed by AI, setting a precedent for other nations to follow suit, as industry giants like Microsoft advocate for government-led safety frameworks and academic access to ensure responsible AI development.
  • Microsoft’s alignment with the proposed AI legislation demonstrates its commitment to responsible AI governance, as it recognizes the need for safety measures such as AI system brakes for critical infrastructure and emphasizes international cooperation to establish unified AI regulations based on shared values and principles.
