Uday Kumar joined the DC Lean + Agile Meetup on Wednesday, April 10, 2024.


The swift rise of generative AI technologies has ignited an unparalleled tech ‘arms race’. Yet, this growth comes intertwined with risks: fake news, distorted narratives, factual inaccuracies, and intellectual property theft. This leads to a pressing query: How should we regulate Generative AI? While institutions like the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and The White House have offered overarching guidelines, concrete and actionable safeguards remain elusive.

Merely relying on GenAI service providers for accountability is no longer tenable, especially given the ease of creating, launching, and accessing GenAI solutions. What we require is a universal mechanism—akin to an electrical “circuit breaker”—to preempt and mitigate threats. Drawing from my FinTech background, I will outline a strategic but simple framework to navigate this challenge and foster a responsible AI landscape.
