Serhat TUNAR -TDO- In the days ahead, there was a world-renowned visitor to the European Commission, who was expected to unveil his artificial intelligence strategy.
Mark Zuckerberg, the co-founder of social media giant Facebook and who already serves as the company's CEO, met with members of the European Union Commission in Brussels before the European Union announced new regulations on personal data security and Privacy.
Facebook's boss, whose name has been involved in many scandals in recent years, met with European Union Commission Vice President Margrethe Vestager, Industry Commissioner Thierry Breton and Commissioner for values and transparency Vera Jourova.
Before the interview, Zuckerberg had suggested in an article in the British newspaper The Financial Times that Facebook needed new regulations to regain user trust.
While the regulations in question may hurt Facebook's businesses in the short term, Zuckerberg said he believes that in the long term it will be better for everyone, including themselves.
Last September Facebook announced that platforms such as Google and Facebook were able to collect more data from users than they could have anticipated.
