Regulation on artificial intelligence is long way off

Monday, June 10, 2019

Subject

AI regulation.

Significance

A series of international and national initiatives has been launched in recent months to address the wider economic, social and political implications of artificial intelligence (AI) systems. These moves could be the precursors of more substantive regulation of this technology over the longer term.

Impacts

  • The risks AI system pose to employment in industry and services will generate the most public criticism and calls for regulation.
  • Technology firms will oppose regulation on the grounds that it would stifle innovation.
  • US ‘big tech’ would lobby for a regulation-light federal law on AI technologies rather than a patchwork of state-level rules.
