AI rules ‘cannot be bargained’, EU’s Breton says after OpenAI CEO threat

Reuters exclusively reported that EU industry chief Thierry Breton has said proposed EU rules on artificial intelligence are not up for bargaining, in response to OpenAI CEO Sam Altman’s threat to quit Europe if the rules are too onerous. Altman caved the following day after Breton’s comments, tweeting that OpenAI was not going to leave the bloc. 

Market Impact

EU lawmakers and EU countries are expected to thrash out the details of the European Commission’s draft AI rules in the coming months before they become legislation that may become the global standard for a technology currently led by the United States and China.
