The Trump administration’s lasting impact on AI technology most likely will be its OMB draft guidance, said BSA Senior Director, Policy Christian Troncoso. The budget office released a draft memo to the heads of executive departments and agencies proposing guidance for the regulation of AI applications, accepting comment through March. “It provides a pretty solid foundation,” said Troncoso, noting the emphasis on a nonregulatory approach.
Troncoso expects the Biden administration to take a fresh look at the OMB guidance and apply its own “gloss.” It would be surprising for Biden to “scratch” the document entirely, because it includes a lot of consistency with international documents, he said: BSA is “pleased” OMB articulated a need for industry standards and best practices.
