(Worthy News) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu kicked off a US trip in California to talk to billionaire businessman Elon Musk about antisemitism on his social media platform X – while Musk asked him to address his judicial overhaul in Israel. The two also discussed artificial intelligence in a sparsely attended livestream event Monday.
Netanyahu’s high-profile visit to the San Francisco Bay Area comes at a time when Musk is facing accusations of tolerating antisemitic messages on his social media platform, while Netanyahu is confronting political opposition at home and abroad. Protesters gathered early Monday outside the Fremont, California, factory where Tesla makes its cars.
The official agenda was to consider artificial intelligence, with Netanyahu and the Tesla CEO mostly in agreement on the need to weigh the technology’s benefits against its societal risks. Netanyahu said controlling more advanced AI must start by getting like-minded states to agree to a code of ethics and conduct to foster the technology and “curb the curses.” But he said there will still be a need to “police the planet” against rogue actors.
