Cover Journalist: It is the general trend for AI to lead social development, but it has the function of double-edged sword. How does the Standing Committee of the National Peoples Congress consider promoting the healthy development of AI?
Zhang Yesui: Artificial intelligence is a strategic technology leading a new round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial transformation. Some countries have upgraded artificial intelligence to a major national development strategy. At the same time, it should be noted that the application of artificial intelligence technology is uncertain, which will bring new challenges in legal relations, ethics and social governance to human society.
Zhang Yesui: So on the one hand, we should vigorously promote the development and application of artificial intelligence technology, on the other hand, we should strengthen forward-looking prevention and restraint guidance to ensure safety and controllability. The Standing Committee of the National Peoples Congress has included some legislative items closely related to artificial intelligence, such as the Digital Security Law, the Personal Information Protection Law and the Amendment of the Law on Scientific and Technological Progress in the current five-year legislative plan. At the same time, the legislation of artificial intelligence should be included in the research projects, and the related legal issues should be investigated and demonstrated in depth, so as to make AI innovative development and provide strong legal guarantee for AI innovative development.
