PARIS (Reuters) - Billionaire Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and owner of Twitter, reaffirmed on Friday his view that there should be a 'pause' on the development of artificial intelligence (AI) and that the AI sector needed regulation.

"There is a real danger for digital superintelligence having negative consequences," said Musk, at the Paris VivaTech event.

"I am in favour of AI regulation," he added.
