It is 2020, and technological advances in artificial intelligence have made major breakthroughs. However, many remain concerned at the risks that AI pose to our way of life, and this body is being convened to discuss how―and whether or not to―regulate artificial intelligence. Composed of experts from companies interested in AI development, as well as members of the US government, this body will be tasked with finding a path forward that can integrate AI technology into life while minimizing the risk they pose to cyber security and human safety.
