The rise of artificial intelligence (AI) has sparked debate about the hypothetical threats to humanity. Governments around the world are racing to regulate these technologies. In 2021, the European Union proposed the world’s first AI regulatory framework, the Artificial Intelligence Act, which classifies AI systems by the level of risk they pose and in 2023, a provisional agreement was reached. Last year, President Biden followed their lead with a 100+ page executive order on AI. With much of the implementation taking effect this year, the order may prove disastrous and put the United States at a global technological disadvantage. The benefits of AI are substantial and could revolutionize sectors across the economy including healthcare, education, and finance. Rather than tying up the technology with a top-down, precautionary approach, why not allow market discovery and development? Please join CEI Senior Fellow James Broughel for a private luncheon on resilient AI policy, in conversation with CEI President Kent Lassman. 

12:30 PM – 2:00 PM

This is a private event.
