Tech Roundup Episode 18 – The Future of AI Regulation: Examining Risks and Rewards
In this Tech Roundup episode, we delve into the discussions raised by the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee’s recent hearing on AI regulation.
Neil Chilson and Adam Thierer offer an in-depth analysis of the various approaches to AI that are being considered by regulators and in public policy circles – from voluntary efforts by the industry to promote transparency and accountability to advocating for licensing and testing requirements for AI deployment to the prospect of a global regulatory body for AI. They explore whether AI presents fundamentally new questions for policymakers, or whether regulators already have the tools they need. They discuss the risk of over-regulating this new innovative space and the potential consequences of doing so.
