Regulators in Europe and Washington are racing to figure out how to govern business' use of artificial intelligence while companies push to deploy the technology.
Driving the news: On Wednesday, the EU revealed a detailed proposal on how AI should be regulated, banning some uses outright and defining which uses of AI are deemed "high-risk."
What they're saying: The EU's move "is another wake-up call for the U.S. that it needs to retain its leadership position in the development in these sorts of legal frameworks," said Christian Troncoso, senior director of policy at BSA | The Software Alliance.
"The US is going to really need to start being a little bit more forward-leaning and willing to engage with big trade partners like the EU on the development of norms around technology," he said.
