Microsoft supports the EU’s AI Act. In the blog text Brad Smith, President of Microsoft, highlights the need for accountability and human control over AI systems, emphasizing that no person, government, company, or technology should be above the law.

Smith presents Microsoft’s five-point blueprint for AI governance, which includes

  • implementing government-led AI safety frameworks,
  • requiring safety brakes for AI systems controlling critical infrastructure,
  • developing a legal and regulatory framework based on the technology architecture of AI,
  • promoting transparency and academic access to AI, and
  • pursuing public-private partnerships for addressing societal challenges.

He also calls for international collaboration and the developing of a multilateral framework for AI governance.
