Building A Regulator
Published 2019 · Business
Before we can start writing rules, we first need to ask: Who should write them? Turner argues that it is problematic to allow pure industry self-regulation because companies are responsible mainly to their shareholders whereas only governments have the power and legitimacy to create a single binding code. Turner suggests that AI regulation should be on a cross-industry and international basis. We can learn much from successful examples of international cooperation on matters including the Internet and space law. Turner concludes that we have the opportunity now to build an ideal system of regulation from a blank slate. The longer that we delay, the more difficult it will be to achieve.
