AI and Machine Learning are already having a big impact on the world. Policymakers have noticed, and they are starting to formulate laws and regulations, and to convene conversations, about how society will govern the development of these technologies. This talk will give an overview of how policymakers deal with new technologies, how the process might develop in the case of AI/ML, and why constructive engagement with the policy process will lead to better outcomes for the field, for governments, and for society.
