How Nations Are Losing a Global Race to Tackle A.I.’s Harms 🌍
🌍 AI Regulation is a global concern. The European Union, under the lead of Margrethe Vestager, head of digital policy, introduced a 125-page draft law aimed at managing the broad implications of artificial intelligence in April 2021.
💼 The EU, known for its rigorous approach to tech regulation, meticulously gathered insights from thousands of AI whizzes for three years before drafting a “landmark” policy deemed “future proof.” But as it turns out, the future is a tricky beast to temper. Enter ChatGPT.
🤯 ChatGPT, the mind-bogglingly humanlike chatbot, blindsided EU policymakers. The AI that drove ChatGPT was not mentioned in the draft law or major discussions concerning the policy. It threw into sharp relief the sobering reality that regulatory practices are always playing catch-up with the breakneck pace of technological advancements.
🚀 As a veteran digital transformation guide, I see this as an opportunity. Sure, there may be reactive federal scrambling, furious lobbying, and fractured national responses. But what if, instead of viewing AI regulation as a sprint race, we saw it as an opportunity to redefine the global digital landscape?
💡 Recent developments are compelling, to say the least. The chatbot, fueled by cutting-edge AI, challenges current regulatory practices, and paves the way for exploring new regulatory frameworks. With half the world dithering on the brink of action and the other half already knee-deep in legislative quicksand, the scramble for AI regulation is a wake-up call.
👁️ The question is, do we resist the flow with fear or do we embrace the change and harness it for more than just economic gain? Could we possibly envision a global AI regulation landscape that is proactive rather than reactive, equitable, and, dare I say it, even transformative?
