The U.S. House of Representatives’ Oversight and Government Reform Subcommittee on Information Technology released a white paper this month calling for the U.S. government’s restraint in passing new regulations around artificial intelligence (AI) technology, and more investment for the development of AI.

The 16-page white paper, titled “Rise of the Machines: Artificial Intelligence and its Growing Impact on U.S. Policy,” said the federal government should approach creating new regulations by first assessing if AI technology’s risks to public safety are already addressed by existing laws. If those risks fall outside existing regulations, the federal government “should consider carefully whether modifications or additions are needed to better account for the addition of AI.”
