S Korea calls for UN to regulate AI
South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol yesterday warned world leaders about dangers of fake news and mishandling of artificial intelligence, calling for formation of a UN body to regulate the digital sphere. "If we fail to curb the spread of fake news resulting from the misuse of AI and digital technologies, our freedom will be at risk," Yoon told the assembly. "The market economy anchored in liberal democracy will be in peril, and our very future will be under threat," he added. Korea plans to host a global forum on AI, Yoon said, to discuss the creation of a regulating agency.
