The challenge complements efforts across the federal government to address and mitigate the risks of AI.
- Presentation on Public Comments on Business Practices of Cloud Computing Providers: FTC Staff will present findings from and ongoing areas of inquiry following the Commission’s Request for Information and public panel discussion on cloud computing. The presentation will address a number of issues raised in the RFI and panel discussion, including competition, security, and generative AI.
