COUNTERINTELLIGENCE – In recent months, the brouhaha around ChatGPT and other generative AI-powered tools has shined a new, brighter light on the risks that artificial intelligence poses to users around the world. As a result, Law.com International’s Cassandre Coyer reports, the U.S. and European Union are increasingly looking to each other on how to regulate emerging technologies. One option, perhaps, is to transport a cybernetic organism—living tissue over a metal endoskeleton—from the future to present day Los Angeles in order to ensure the future of humanity. But before we get to that, the U.S. and EU will need to get on the same page—and legal professionals say policy alignment on AI is still unlikely. That doesn’t mean there will be no coordination, however. “…[W]hat there can be alignment on, for example, is to make sure we’re discussing the same thing. So we can create a common understanding of what we actually mean by AI,” noted William Long, global co-chair of Sidley’s Privacy and Cybersecurity practice and head of the EU Data Protection group.

The complaint was filed by Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer on behalf of SoFi Technologies subsidiaries SoFi Bank and SoFi Lending Corp. The court action seeks a declaration invalidating the extension of the moratorium and requiring repayment by borrowers. The case is 1:23-cv-00599, Sofi Bank, N.A. et al v. Cardona et al.
