OpenAI’s Altman believes that the UAE has the potential to become a global AI ‘sandbox’

OpenAI CEO Sam Altman’s Vision for Global Regulation of AI: The UAE as a Sandbox and Unified Policy

Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI, recently spoke at the World Governments Summit about the UAE’s potential to become a global regulatory sandbox for artificial intelligence (AI) technologies. In his virtual appearance, Altman emphasized the need for a controlled environment where AI technologies can be tested and regulations can be developed based on evidence gathered. He also highlighted the importance of unified global policy to regulate future advancements in AI.

Altman is seeking investors for a semiconductor initiative in the Middle East that aims to advance AI. The UAE has heavily invested in AI technology and is well-positioned to be a leader in discussions about its future regulation. However, concerns have been raised about the UAE’s ties to China, as G42, an Emirati AI company controlled by UAE National Security Adviser Sheikh Tahnoon bin Zayed Al Nahyan, has partnerships with OpenAI and other companies. In response to Washington’s demands, G42 has announced plans to scale back its presence in China.

In addition to discussing regulatory sandboxing and global policy, Altman also mentioned OpenAI’s plans to open-source additional large-language models developed by the company. The company also plans to develop tools that make AI services accessible to poorer nations that cannot afford their own systems. This effort aims to make AI technology more accessible to a wider range of countries and people.
