Artificial intelligence doesn’t require burdensome regulation
BY MATT CARROLL, OPINION CONTRIBUTOR
One of the most important issues that Congress will face in 2018 is how and when to regulate our growing dependence on artificial intelligence (AI). During the U.S. National Governors Association summer meetings, Elon Musk urged the group to push forward with regulation “before it’s too late,” stating that AI was an “existential threat to humanity.”
Hyperbole aside, there are legitimate concerns about the technology and its use. But a rush to regulation could exacerbate current issues, or create new issues that we’re not prepared to deal with along the way.
