A new study from MACHINA Summit.AI published today shows that the overwhelming majority of Brits (75%) believe that the UK needs new regulations to control artificial intelligence. These findings come in the wake of Tesla boss Elon Musk’s recent dire warnings that ‘AI is our biggest risk existential threat.’
The survey reveals that 44% believe the UK Government should lead new AI regulations. 28% prefer an independent global body to take control, with just 11% wanting the technology industry to head it up. Post-Brexit, the EU gained a paltry 8% support.
