Schildkraut Talks AI Executive Order in Legaltech News

November 21, 2023

Peter Schildkraut, co-leader of the Technology, Media & Telecommunications industry team, was quoted in the Legaltech News article, "White House's AI Executive Order Opens the Door Wide to New Rules, Enforcement Actions.” The article discusses the Biden Administration’s new executive order on the “Safe, Secure and Trustworthy Development and Use of Artificial Intelligence,” which takes a different approach to mitigating AI-induced risks and tasks both Congress and the executive branch with passing new legislation, developing new standards and safeguards, and issuing new requirements.
