- Presidential hopeful Andrew Yang wrote a blog post laying out how he would regulate the tech industry.
- As president, Yang said he would not break up big tech company monopolies. Instead, the former tech executive wants to regulate the use of data and create a federal agency focused on mitigating the negative effects of smartphones and social media.
- Yang spoke to a room of tech workers at a fundraiser in San Francisco on Wednesday. He said that his supporter, Tesla CEO Elon Musk, agrees with him.
- “Elon Musk said to me that, ‘Look, all of our incentives on AI development are in one direction. That is going to lead to problems. And so it would be very useful if there were some other set of incentives, and that’s not going to come from the competition, because we’re just racing against each other,'” Yang told the room.
