2.2 Flexible Regulatory Approach

Publisher: Information Technology Industry Council (ITI)

We encourage governments to evaluate existing policy tools and use caution before adopting new laws, regulations, or taxes that may inadvertently or unnecessarily impede the responsible development and use of AI. As applications of AI technologies vary widely, overregulating can inadvertently reduce the number of technologies created and offered in the marketplace, particularly by startups and smaller businesses. We encourage policymakers to recognize the importance of sector specific approaches as needed; one regulatory approach will not fit all AI applications. We stand ready to work with policymakers and regulators to address legitimate concerns where they occur.
