Did Canada roll out the first legal defintion of artificial intelligence?

The Canadian government, via its Treasury Board, now has a month old Directive on Automated Decision Making. The directive, applying to  federal government departments, is to guide the application of Automated Decision Systems. The intent is to ensure the use of such systems is done with limited risk, with procedural fairness, due process, with assessment of… Continue reading Did Canada roll out the first legal defintion of artificial intelligence?

Reserve Bank of India introduces FinTech regulatory sandbox.

The Reserve Bank of India has issued a structured proposal for a FinTech regulatory sandbox. The proposal is straight forward and follows the establishment of a working group that reported in 2018.

A new US senate bill  has been introduced to regulate machine learing algorithms. The content is discussed here. What caught my eye was the definition of "automated decision system." I have suggested previously  that a definition of artificial intelligence is important for successful regulation. This appears to be a be a work around. Rather than define artificial… Continue reading Undefined

Some further thoughts on the Google AI governance white paper.

Previously I described Google's white paper on AI regulation, released not long ago.

Google’s AI Governance white paper calls for regulatory clean up.

(I got lotsa white paper. And why is it always called a white paper?) Google's white paper on AI governance has been released (January 22) and is an imporant read given the source. It calls for "concrete, context-specific" government action on AI regulation with five areas for consideration: -explainability standards -fairness appraisal -safety considerations -human-AI collaboration,… Continue reading Google’s AI Governance white paper calls for regulatory clean up.
