To regulate or not: a social dynamics analysis of the race for AI supremacy
Tom Lenaerts has shared his work with the audience at this week’s Research Meeting. The project addresses the concept of ‘AI race’ and its social and normative impact that stem from the rapid advancements of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and other intelligent technologies. The new applications drive the competition between nations, business, and regions. And what are they competing for? The answer is technological supremacy but the question is at what cost? Regulations attempting to tackle such scenarios have a setback due to the intangibility of the race. For this reason, the researchers have decided to assess the competition and eventually outline a model which also takes into account the relevance of the time-scale of the race.
