36 member countries plus six others signed on to the OECD's AI principles late last month. Described as a global reference point for trustworthy AI, it is noted that other similar guidelines and principles have been the basis for laws in other areas. So, given the lack of much significant legislative activity at the national levels, this… Continue reading AI, OECD and, sometimes, try.
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. The sandbox is to allow exploration of new and innovative technologies (which is noted to include Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning applications) that will solve… Continue reading Reserve Bank of India introduces FinTech regulatory sandbox.
(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).

Here are a few more thoughts about it (you'll have to have reference to the paper as I mention some specific items in it): Many of these discussions on AI regulation still begin with the premise that we know what we mean by AI.… Continue reading Some further thoughts on the Google AI governance white paper.
(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.
