As with all other products and technologies, we can expect to see (and in fact already do see) the emergence of varying approaches to governance for artificial intelligence systems. Currently, AI oversight may be addressed within independent federal, state, and international frameworks – for instance, within the regulation of autonomous vehicle development, or laws applicable to automated decision-making.

Artificial Intelligence is not a new concept or endeavor. In October 1950, Alan Turing published Computing Machinery and Intelligence,” proposing the question: Can machines think? Since then, the concept has been studied at length, with an immediately recognizable example being IBM Watson, which memorably defeated Jeopardy! champions Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter in 2011. AI has been captured and fictionalized in movies, video games, and books. Even if we are not aware of it, AI underlies many technical tools that we use every day.

It’s only April, but 2023 has already been a big year for new and evolving data privacy legislation. In January, the California Privacy Rights Act took effect, expanding and clarifying the rights and obligations within the California Consumer Privacy Act. In addition, exceptions for business-to-business and employee and applicant data expired, ushering in new requirements and broadening the reach of the California laws. At the same time, the second major state data privacy law – the Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act – took full effect.
