Morgan Lewis partners David Plotinsky and Giovanna Cinelli and government affairs manager David Mendelsohn explored national security and other risks posed by artificial intelligence (AI) and discussed the ways in which the US government is using existing regulatory tools and developing new ones to address those risks.

Key Takeaways

  • The US government is leveraging existing regulatory tools to address artificial intelligence (AI), including export controls and the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS).
  • The US government is also developing new regulatory authorities to address risks posed by AI, including outbound investment restrictions and regulation of bulk sensitive personal data and government-related data, and the need for new authorities is likely to increase.
  • The US government is also seeking to coordinate a whole-of-government approach by clearly defining roles and responsibilities for the various executive-branch agencies.
  • Although the executive branch was first to begin doing so, the US Congress is rapidly increasing its own investigative and legislative activities.
