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

The struggle for control over AI technology: a global race to set the rules for the digital age

The recent debate held by prominent figures, including former British deputy prime minister Clegg, Washington, and European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen, focused on the challenges of policing AI in a rapidly evolving technological landscape. Clegg highlighted the difficulties of regulating such an ever-changing field, while Harris praised Washington’s efforts to address the dangers of AI through voluntary business agreements. Von der Leyen urged others to follow Brussels’ new legally binding rulebook to control the influence of tech companies.

This debate serves as just one example of a larger global struggle over controlling AI technology. As this new digital Great Game continues, the winner will ultimately determine the rules that govern this era-defining technology. Once established, these regulations will be challenging to change. Those who observe this battle feel it is similar to 19th-century European powers dividing the world. Amba Kak from the AI Now Institute described 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.

As POLITICO interviewed numerous politicians, policymakers, and tech executives to gain insights into the dynamics at play as we navigate this disruptive technology. Over the next year, there will be a fierce battle for control over AI technology, with winners and losers emerging. Policymakers anticipate finalizing many new AI standards by the end of 2024 as they try to find solutions that balance innovation with safety concerns.

The ongoing political battle over controlling AI technology reflects a broader struggle between competing interests seeking to shape its development and use. As this new digital Great Game unfolds, it remains uncertain who will emerge victorious and what rules will govern this transformative technology in years to come.

The debate around policing AI is just one piece of a larger puzzle when it comes to controlling its use and impact on society. It highlights the challenges faced by policymakers and regulators in keeping up with rapid technological advancements while ensuring that these technologies are used ethically and responsibly.

As we move forward into an increasingly digital future, it is essential that we continue to have open and honest discussions about how we can harness the power of AI while mitigating its potential risks. Only then can we ensure that this transformative technology benefits everyone equally and does not exacerbate existing social or economic inequalities.

In conclusion, while there is no easy solution when it comes to policing AI, ongoing dialogue between stakeholders is crucial for finding effective ways to regulate its use and impact on society. It is our responsibility as journalists and citizens alike to stay informed about these developments so that we can make informed decisions about how we engage with this powerful technology in years to come.
