Sam Altman, the leader of OpenAI, believes that the United Arab Emirates (UAE) could be an effective “regulatory sandbox” for experimentation with artificial intelligence technologies. This would allow testing and development of global rules to limit their use in the future. Altman emphasized the need for a closed environment that would give people a glimpse into the future and allow them to experiment with artificial intelligence.

Altman stressed the necessity of uniform policies to control the progress in artificial intelligence. He pointed out that the UAE is in a good position to take the lead in these discussions for various reasons. Altman made these remarks while seeking investment in the Middle East for a semiconductor initiative aimed at advancing AI.

In addition, OpenAI plans to develop tools for poorer nations that cannot afford the huge costs of building their own artificial intelligence systems. Altman expressed OpenAI’s desire to provide artificial intelligence services to countries with an offering that matches their needs.

Recently, there has been concern in the United States about the UAE’s ties to China, particularly in the field of artificial intelligence. G42, an Emirati artificial intelligence company, has announced plans to reduce its presence in China in response to demands from Washington, despite previously having partnerships with companies such as OpenAI, Microsoft and Cerebras Systems. The move was made to address national security concerns.
