I set up a whole blog about regulating artificial intelligence and some guy suggests that's impossible. It's understandable why people feel that way, really.

A quick primer on the federal and provicial legislative spheres in Canada: The Constitution Act, 1867 sets out whether the federal government or the… Continue reading I guess they didn’t think of that.
