Political Giants Clash in AI Battle: World Leaders Tackle Regulation of Epoch-Making Technology

US and EU Disagree on AI Regulations: Will China Intervene? – POLITICO

The ongoing political battle to control AI technology is far from over, with nations worldwide striving to establish dominance over the rules governing this era-defining technology. This was evident during a recent debate attended by prominent figures such as former British deputy prime minister Clegg, Washington, and European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen, where the topic of policing AI was discussed.

Clegg highlighted the challenges of regulating AI in a world where technology is constantly evolving, while Harris praised Washington’s efforts to address the dangers of AI through voluntary business agreements. Von der Leyen urged others to adopt Brussels’ new legally binding rulebook to control the influence of tech companies.

The debate felt like witnessing 19th-century European powers dividing the world, with Amba Kak from the AI Now Institute describing it as an alternate reality. By the end of the meeting, 29 countries signed a voluntary agreement to reduce risks associated with AI technologies like OpenAI’s ChatGPT.

Over the next year, there will be a fierce battle to control AI technology, with winners and losers emerging. Policymakers anticipate finalizing many new AI standards by the end of 2024 as they navigate this disruptive technology. POLITICO interviewed numerous politicians, policymakers, and tech executives to gain insights into the dynamics at play as the world grapples with this complex issue.
