Regulation can affect more than just chatbots.
Lina Khan, Chairman of the US Federal Trade Commission, published an article in the New York Times on artificial intelligence and tools based on neural networks. Khan is sure that this area should be regulated by law.
On the one hand, Khan writes, the state should keep the market competitive and promote innovation. On the other hand, dubious business models and business practices must be avoided.
Khan is currently concerned about four areas related to the development of AI:
Data privacy: AI-powered systems must comply with data protection and user privacy laws. Protect users from AI fraud, such as voice spoofing or deepfakes. Anti-discrimination: AI-powered systems must not promote prejudice or discrimination. Fair Competition: Large technology companies should not collude and suppress smaller competitors in the AI market.
The official notes that from the point of view of the law, AI-based systems are nothing new and are subject to many existing laws, for example, on personal data. But this may not be enough.
In the article, Khan does not mention specific legislative restrictions that could be imposed against the industry.
This is interesting
