Although Mr Macron promotes the use of digital algorithms to make public and private services more efficient, he said in an interview with Wired magazine, that the technology should be open to public scrutiny to ensure public trust.

He said: ”My role is not to block this change, but to be able to train or retrain people for them to get opportunities in this new world.”

While AI could revolutionise major industries in the fields of medicine, energy, transport, defence and finance, Mr Macron warned that unless the technology can be trusted, “people will eventually reject this innovation”.

He guaranteed that all the AI algorithms created by his government will be transparent to reduce the threat to democracy which AI poses.
