There are three main reasons for that:
- AI has caused few real problems.
- It would slow down vital innovation and risk negative side effects.
- The technological breakthrough is so new and immature that it is unclear what should be regulated.
My op-ed recived a reply from Per Axbom:
"It is not written in stone that the advantages of AI will outweigh the disadvantages. This is why regulations are needed, to ensure a direction that mitigates harm and creates benefit for the majority, not the few."
I thank him for a debate about AI that wasn't about doomsday scenarios. But that doesn't mean he is right, I write in my reply.
"A cardinal error when evaluating new technology is to compare it to a perfect state and not to reality. Per Axbom commits this error regarding several problems with AI that he enumerates."
