The White House takes a first step toward AI regulation

The Biden administration announced late yesterday that it wants to study what rules may need to be implemented to make sure so-called generative AI doesn’t threaten society. We look at what the government has said thus far and how it could move forward on potential AI regulation. Plus, Alibaba, the Chinese e-commerce giant, has released its own rival to Microsoft's ChatGPT and Google's Bard AI chatbots.
