Biden’s AI Overreach, You’ll Be Shocked What They Don’t Want You to Know

The Biden administration’s push for regulations of artificial intelligence systems is raising concerns among Republicans. While the goal of building trust in AI technology is important, there are worries that regulations could lead to censorship and limit free speech.

Alan Davidson, the assistant secretary of communications and information at the Commerce Department’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), recently spoke about the importance of government audits of AI systems to ensure they produce trustworthy outputs. However, audits may also be used to determine whether AI systems promote misinformation, disinformation, or other misleading content.

The issue of policing disinformation created by AI is likely to present both technical and political challenges to federal regulators. The Biden administration has put out some preliminary guidelines on how AI should be developed, but it remains to be seen how they will address the issue of misinformation and disinformation, and whether they will be able to work with Republicans to create meaningful regulations that protect both businesses and the public.
