(I) (See what I did there with the logo?) Anyway, the Food and Drug Administration recently issued a press release and a discussion paper regarding a framework for AI based medical devices. In particular the agency wants to deal with continuously learning or adaptive algorithms, rather than ones that have been locked (and approved).

Standing still.

Here's a recap of what US legislators accomplished on the tech (including AI) regulation front in 2018. https://www.thenewstribune.com/news/local/article223939600.html Spoiler alert: there's a lot of words in the article, but the answer is nothing. OK so what legislative excitements will abound in 2019? Spoiler alert: not much. This, according to the article, often because legislators don't… Continue reading Standing still.
