Calls from scholars and public intellectuals for imposing government regulations on AI research and development (R&D) are gaining traction. On the one hand, significant global economic and social benefits have been realized through implementation of these technologies; attempting to regulate them could be a hindrance to further innovation. On the other hand, unabated development might lead to undesirable outcomes in the future. This panel will discuss the current state of government regulation and debate the role it should ultimately play.
