CascadiaPrime Cognition - The AI-Friction Policy - Economic and Social policy

AI-Friction: a references point for how transnational institutions, nationstates, governments, non-governmental organizations and business may be progressing in reducing AI-Friction. AI-Friction is a concept that draws its inspiration from a Bostion Consulting Group concept e-friction. The BCG e-Friction Index rates economies on the basis of 55 indicators of e-friction, factors that hinder online interaction and exchange and constrain economic activity. The AI-Friction index(s) will focus on AI factors that constrain AI driven and facilitated economic activity. It is intended that it will provide a guide for policy development.

It will start with a list of indicators of AI-friction factors - factors that hinder utilization of AI to achieve social and economic goals.
