Some policymakers worry that big tech firms will dominate AI, through these acquisitions and partnerships with AI startups, despite not being subject to merger rules, said Lazar Radic, senior scholar for competition policy at the International Center for Law & Economics, and adjunct professor of law at IE University.

“It is important to ensure that these companies do not exchange sensitive information that could distort competition,” he said.
