Splunk VP Says IT Leaders Want Global AI Regulations

The vice president of Splunk’s public sector segment said IT leaders are calling for artificial intelligence regulations developed by the international community.

In an opinion piece written for Nasdaq, Bill Rowan, a 4×24 member and a past Wash100 awardee, cited a survey indicating that IT leaders want to use AI to improve productivity, innovation and customer experiences, among others. However, nearly half of the survey respondents said insufficient trust in the technology, as well as data and security concerns, are preventing them from fully embracing AI.

Rowan said leaders are calling for the international community to set up new guidelines and an ethical framework to ensure a more effective and trustworthy AI experience compared to each country setting up separate regulations, Nasdaq reported.

Rowan’s statements coincide with the U.S. Agency for International Aid and the Department of State’s request for information on implementing Executive Order 14110 on Safe, Secure and Trustworthy Development and Use of AI. The EO requires the two agencies to publish a playbook that incorporates a framework for developing and using AI safely outside the United States and outlines the risks and opportunities associated with AI development outside the country.
