Ajit Pai Talks Artificial Intelligence, Other Emerging Tech at FCC Forum

Ajit Pai, chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, has said he believes artificial intelligence, machine learning and other emerging technologies could help build up the decision-making process and revolutionize the communications sector.

Pai made the remarks Friday at the FCC-hosted Forum on AI and Machine Learning held in Washington, D.C.

He mentioned two AI-based applications – Microsoft’s Seeing AI and IBM’s Content Clarifier – and how such tools work to help people with visual and cognitive disabilities.

Pai noted that the event sought to focus on demonstration and discussion about AI and other emerging tech.

“And when dealing with emerging technologies, I believe that one of the foundational principles for government should be regulatory humility,” he added.
