Not Intelligent

Doghouse – AI

Article from Issue 273/2023

Earlier technologies have persisted despite government regulations – so will AI.

I have been writing articles for Linux magazines for over two decades. Some articles were very technical, some were business-oriented, and some had to do with the philosophy of free and open source versus closed source in producing systems.

However, recent movements by various governments to "limit AI" have caused me to write an opinion article this month describing why this limiting will not work.

I look back in time to other "limiting" exercises, such as embargoes. Do we really think that countries that are under embargo cannot get the hardware and software they need to do whatever they want to do with AI, either by smuggling it out of some country or relying on one of their "partners" to break the embargo?
