OpenAI leader Sam Altman sees UAE as a potential ‘regulatory sandbox’ for AI development and governance.

CEO of OpenAI, Sam Altman, suggests that the UAE has the potential to be a global hub for AI experimentation.

As a journalist, I have rewritten the article to make it unique. Here is the new version:

Sam Altman, leader of OpenAI, believes that the United Arab Emirates (UAE) could be an effective “regulatory sandbox” for experimenting with artificial intelligence (AI) technologies. According to Altman, this would allow for testing and the development of global rules for limiting their use in the future. He emphasized the need for a contained environment to give people a glimpse of the future and let them experiment with AI.

Altman also stressed the importance of unified policies to control advancements in AI. He pointed out that, for various reasons, the UAE is well-positioned to take a leading role in these discussions. Altman made these statements while seeking investment in the Middle East for a semiconductor initiative aimed at advancing AI.

In recent days, there has been concern in the United States about the UAE’s ties to China, particularly in the field of artificial intelligence. G42, an Emirati AI company, has announced plans to scale back its presence in China in response to requests from Washington, despite previously having partnerships with companies like OpenAI, Microsoft, and Cerebras Systems. This move was made to address concerns related to national security.

Despite these concerns, Altman also acknowledged that OpenAI plans to develop tools for poorer nations that cannot afford the massive costs of creating their own AI systems. Altman expressed OpenAI’s desire to provide AI services to countries with an offering that is suitable for their needs.
