Regulating A.I.: Five Approaches to Oversight

Regulators around the world are taking vastly different approaches to policing the technology of artificial intelligence. The result is a highly fragmented and confusing global regulatory landscape. The major frameworks for regulating A.I. include Europe’s Risk-Based Law, the U.S. Voluntary Codes of Conduct, U.S. Tech-Based Law, China’s regulations of speech, and efforts for global cooperation. Europe’s approaching involves categorizing A.I. tools based on the level of risk they pose and placing strict regulations on the riskiest systems. The U.S. is taking a more voluntary approach, with companies agreeing to self-regulate their A.I. systems. In China, regulations cover recommendation algorithms, deep fakes, and generative A.I. Many experts believe that effective A.I. regulation will require global collaboration, but so far, few concrete results have been achieved. The idea of creating an international agency for A.I. regulation has been suggested, similar to the International Atomic Energy Agency that was created to limit the spread of nuclear weapons.
