What happened this week in AI by Louie This week, President Joe Biden brought AI regulation back into the spotlight by signing an executive order to oversee artificial intelligence. This directive calls on various government agencies to establish new guidelines concerning AI safety, data privacy, and cybersecurity. A notable part of the order is allocating funds for research on preserving privacy. The government is evidently emphasizing regulation in areas such as privacy, equity, and civil rights. It’s crucial to note that without the backing of Congress, this executive order does not have the force of law. In the upcoming months, we may witness initiatives from the European Union, and we’ve already observed strict regulations from China.
