Here’s a new cartoon on artificial intelligence, experimentation, and regulation. Creators of new technology often extol the virtues of experimentation. When it comes to policymakers experimenting with legal regulation, I often hear a different tune from those creating new technology. But they are experimenting with our lives and well-being, with society and democracy. Law, too, is an experiment. We often don’t know what works until we try it. So, while those developing new technologies experiment on society, is it so wrong for society to experiment in return?
