CascadiaPrime Cognition - Law and Regulation

The legal,regulatory and broader institutional and social structures for the global social management of artificial general intelligence and narrow artificial intelligence including robotics are in their earliest stages of development.

I think it fair comment to say the most law makers and lawyers are deeply ignorant of current technologies and have a generally poor grasp of the social, economic and military implications beyond that derived from headline scanning. It is also true to say that those involved in the field are struggling as well. At the political level few have any gut level appreciation of the scale and nature of the changes to come and much less about their drivers.

This puts a special onus of industry participants and stakeholders to help close the "comprehension gap". This field is inherently interdisciplinary and there is great need to work together. There is an urgency as well - for the changes are coming faster than generally appreciated or admitted.
