Speaking at a session organized by the Observer Research Foundation, Garcetti highlighted the need for a comprehensive regulatory framework on AI to prevent potentially catastrophic consequences.
He stressed the urgency of staying ahead in the AI field to avoid risks associated with advanced technologies.
