Policymakers are watching carefully at the rate at which tech firms are incorporating AI into all facets of business, infrastructure, and government. There is an inherent policy tension between ensuring American competitiveness in AI technologies and protecting citizens from its misuse. While certainly AI is the future, critics are now calling on lawmakers to pump the brakes on certain AI applications such as affect recognition, racial bias, health-related AI, facial recognition among others. Meanwhile many wants more transparency about these systems and how they make their decisions. Our panel will explore the widening debate.
