He highlighted the risks of generative AI, such as deepfake videos, calling for regulation, noting that those who create them must face consequences.

New technologies will affect every product in every company. Take radiologists as an example. In the next five to ten years, artificial intelligence may become their assistant and assist with priority tasks.

He emphasized the need for regulation, saying that anyone who has worked with artificial intelligence will realize that this is something so different and profound that we need social regulations to think about how to adapt.
