Lawmakers such as Congressman Ted Lew of California have called for the creation of a federal agency to regulate artificial intelligence.
Liu argued in an opinion piece in the New York Times on Monday that facial recognition systems used by law enforcement agencies could misidentify innocent people from various minority groups.
Engineering standards organizations should set standards for safe AI systems, just as medical organizations set rules for safe practices in medicine, Huang said.
He also said that various laws and social policies will play an important role in artificial intelligence.
“What is the social policy of using it? What are the legal criteria for its use also needs to be worked out.” — said Huang.
“Now everything is evolving. The fact that we are all talking about it, it will help us in a better position later on.”
