Elon Musk famously compared artificial intelligence to “summoning the demon,” citing such potential threats as robots harming or killing humans. But the examples need not be so dramatic to demonstrate the need for regulation of AI. As I outline, the threats from AI are indisputably real, and regulation of AI is both inevitable and necessary. The question is: how should AI be regulated? In this presentation, I suggest potential frameworks for AI regulation and discuss the advantages and disadvantages offered by these frameworks. I also discuss both the probable domestic and international consequences of how America ultimately chooses to regulate artificial intelligence.
