The federal government spent the early weeks of 2020 issuing non-binding, but still insightful, guidelines for the artificial intelligence (AI) and autonomous vehicles (AV) private sector.

Last week, the U.S. Department of Transportation published guidelines titled “Ensuring American Leadership in Automated Vehicle Technologies: Automated Vehicles 4.0,” which included 10 principles to protect consumers, promote markets and ensure a standardized federal approach to AVs. Earlier in January, the White House released a memo outlining 10 principles for agencies to consider when developing AI regulations.

Lawyers say the documents may be light on details, but they clearly demonstrate the current administration is encouraging innovation and is seemingly against overburdensome regulations in the AI and autonomous vehicles industry.
