Substantial thought and angst has been expended over the fact that artificial intelligence (AI) is coming to your workplace to take over blue- and white-collar jobs, alike.
But a major risk of AI has been almost entirely ignored: the threat to companies’ intellectual property (IP).
Existing laws are insufficient to protect against the unique threats posed by AI. While I am no fan of over-regulation, now is the time to call for legislative action — before it’s too late.
Leading technological and legal minds need to develop legislative safeguards that Congress can enact — ones that will sensibly protect employers’ IP from the risks of AI. I’ve coined this proposed new regulation as “The Artificial Intelligence Data Protection Act” (AIDPA).
