US CTO Discusses EU, US Strategies on Artificial Intelligence

Michael Kratsios, federal chief technology officer, compared the similarities and differences between the U.S. and European Union's artificial intelligence strategy.

Speaking at a Hudson Institute event, Kratsios said both strategies take a "values-based approach" to regulating and encouraging AI innovation. The CTO, however, said that there is "some room for improvement" in the European Commission's strategy, specifically in its "all or nothing" approach in regulating the use of AI in high-risk and low-risk use cases, MeriTalk reported Thursday.

Kratsios explained that the U.S. believes it needed to create a model that was "use-based, risk-based, and sector-specific." He highlighted the need for flexibility to regulate appropriately.

The U.S. model, according to Kratsios, focuses on public engagement, with the government using the private sector’s knowledge. This focus on public engagement, he said, also increases trust in AI technologies.
