Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki warned on Polish Radio 24 that artificial intelligence is “unfortunately a double-edged sword that regulators need to know how to use.” According to him, regulation is necessary “not to harm”.
On Friday, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki was a guest on Polish Radio 24. During the interview, a question was asked about the development of artificial intelligence, which has been hotly debated in Poland and around the world for several months.
Morawiecki: artificial intelligence is a double-edged sword
“Artificial intelligence is both a great opportunity and a huge threat. A knife can cut bread, or you can cut someone’s throat. Unfortunately, this is a double-edged sword that needs to be used from the regulatory side, the head of government noted.
Morawiecki said that this week he met with OpenAI CEO and co-creator of the popular ChatGPT chatbot, Sam Altman, who was visiting Warsaw. One of the world leaders in the development of artificial intelligence recently held a series of meetings in many European capitals with representatives of the authorities and the scientific community, during which he discusses the regulation of this issue.

“For most of this meeting, we talked about the rules. About such regulation of applications using artificial intelligence and the use of artificial intelligence so as not to cause harm, the Prime Minister said on the air of Polish Radio 24. something that can take children, teenagers, adults away from good things can lead to deep disappointment. Today more and more countries are trying to regulate these media. We better be wise before the damage, not after the damage,” the prime minister said.
Morawiecki stressed that he “does not support” freezing work on artificial intelligence. He added that “I don’t think it’s possible.”
