AI is making headlines, because even if it offers many benefits, many concerns arise – also regarding AI ethics and the risks for humans. AI regulation is currently one of the most discussed topics: while the US, Africa, and Asia are developing and integrating AI fast, the European Union is discussing a law that might prevent the region from being competitive. In the meantime, Singapore is developing AI beings that could represent the next frontier in business. This and much more in this number of FinTech Weekly, the fintech newsletter to discover fintech news, events, companies and insights.

    Douglas Rushkoff, professor of Media Theory at the City University of New York (CUNY), addresses the generative AI topic and AI ethics by affirming that regulation is necessary for the correct development of artificial intelligence. Many tech experts and CEOs – including Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google – recently talked about how risky AI can be if not used properly. Rushkoff said that to properly regulate AI it is not necessary to change what artificial intelligence does, but to regulate how people use it.
