Emory International Law Review

The European Union (EU) has recently announced that it will consider a proposal to systematically regulate artificial intelligence (AI) systems. This regulation will add to the legacy of other data regulation acts adopted in the EU and move the EU closer to a comprehensive framework through which it can address rapidly evolving technologies like AI. The United States has yet to implement data regulation or AI regulation legislation at the federal level. This inaction by the United States could negatively impact global cooperation with the EU and China and innovation within the United States. The United States is currently the global leader in AI technology. However, if it wants to maintain that position, it should consider the negative repercussions of dragging its feet regarding regulation. This Comment will demonstrate why systematic regulation of the type being developed in the EU should be adopted in the United States.
