Cybersecurity lawyer Leeza Garber provides insight on the regulation of artificial intelligence on “Making Money.”
Artificial intelligence was a hot topic for some of the biggest tech leaders in the country during their first-quarter earnings calls last week, a report found.
Meta, Alphabet, Microsoft and Amazon leaders mentioned AI a total of 168 times during their earning calls last week, Insider reported – with Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg alone citing AI 27 times.
The focus on AI during the meetings is another signal that Silicon Valley’s tech race on artificial intelligence is in full swing, with the leaders highlighting on the calls how they will further integrate and invest in the tech at their respective companies.
Alphabet, Google’s parent company, brought up AI more than the other three tech companies, according to the report, at 64 mentions. Microsoft made 50 mentions of the technology, and Meta referenced AI 47 times.
