Both Congress and the White House have made a point to not create a blanket regulation covering AI at large and to be cautious in its approach to this emerging technology. Some critics may say the White House has not acted strongly enough as concerns surrounding AI grow, but it's taking a prudent approach to invest in research and craft an individualized approach for each potential issue. A decentralized approach to regulating AI is the most effective way to handle this complex issue.
The White House must act swiftly and strongly as it looks to establish safeguards against the potential dangers of AI. Harris’ meeting with CEOs of leading AI companies is a nice step, but the Biden administration’s voluntary blueprint last year is not enough to prevent an explosion of bias and misinformation brought by AI. Pres. Biden must issue an executive order to further enhance regulation efforts.
