SINGAPORE -- Technology companies, including social media giant Facebook and ride-hailing unicorn Grab, expressed support for a framework developed by Singapore aimed at strengthening oversight on the use of artificial intelligence.

The two companies are among more than 10 that publicly backed the framework after it was first published last year. A revised set of guidelines was released on Jan. 21 at the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, in response to feedback from businesses.
