Reducing Entry Barriers in the Development and Application of AI
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is developing rapidly and countries from around the globe are beginning to articulate national strategies for handling the political ramifications. Powering innovations like driverless cars, autonomous drones, full-sequence genetic analytics and powerful voice assistant technology, the future certainly looks full of potential. However unsettled questions about who will reap these benefits and when they will be achieved leave storm clouds on the political horizon. Amid questions of industrial concentration and economic inequality on one side, and concerns about lagging U.S. productivity and the slow pace of AI diffusion on the other, this paper attempts to lay out a framework that can begin to address these various issues.
