Regulation of AI ?: Early Exploratory Paths

For years, we thought Google was asleep at the switch because they did little to expand upon the reach of their search engine as now witnessed by the emphasis on AI which might well be simply characterized as a search engine on steroids. Apparently the corporate strategy was to adopt the conventional strategy of maximizing shareholder welfare not consumer welfare.

New challenges need to be addressed by adopting a range of different disciplines; to this end is there a role for the inclusion of a counterpart to an antiballistic missile system strategy in the development of a system to regulate AI? More precisely, in that AI is being used in antiballistic missile systems how are the resultant ethic, legal and operational issues being addressed in this most critical of systems and are the resultant findings relevant to other systems?

Can and Should AI Be Regulated?

The Center for Regulatory Effectiveness (CRE)


We appreciate the informed emails we have received concerning the potential regulation of AI.

Central to the comments we have received is a comparison of the  establishment of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) in the White House Office of Management and Budget to control the growth of the administrative state with a similar program to control AI. In short, should an OIRA type organization be established to oversee AI?

The aforementioned correspondence is in part  related to the critical role that  CRE personnel had in the establishment of OIRA.

Re: OIRA Libraries

What is the Difference between New Orleans Jazz and Traditional Jazz

Musically, traditional jazz musicians play in more of a swing-style.  The New Orleanian preference is not for an ensemble sound therefore it is  deemphasized in favor of solos. Traditional jazz  also differs from its southern origin by being faster paced, resembling the hustle-bustle of city life.

Traditional  jazz  is also characterized by its use of syncopation. New Orleans jazz, on the other hand,  is characterized by its use of collective improvisation.

Current Events: Background

Some scholars believe that the term Administrative State should be replaced because of its pejorative implications.

If the term “administrative state”  is placed into the CRE Search engine,, nearly a thousand hits appear. The following is a reproduction of the first page of the aforementioned search which provides one basis for each reader to reach a conclusion regarding the use of the term “administrative state.”

It should be noted that the CRE database differs substantially from that of Google; it contains nearly 500 journal articles hand chosen by CRE over a period of nearly fifty years as leading articles on the establishment of centralized regulatory review at
