Weeks after Alphabet chief Sundar Pichai visited the European Union capital, Brussels is about to be treated to some more Silicon Valley star power. Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg is in town today to meet with senior officials to discuss new rules and regulations for the internet, two days before the the bloc unveils its plans to legislate artificial intelligence. He’s unlikely to get the red-carpet treatment, with the social media giant continuing to fend off antitrust and privacy scrutiny over how it handles user data. Still, there’s a good chance his visit to Brussels will be more pleasant than the last one, when he was taken to task by members of the European parliament over privacy issues.
