As AI Spreads, Will We Get Regulation Right?



In June 2023, Pew Research Center published a new report focusing on best and worst changes in digital life by 2035.

In preparation of this report, the Center interviewed 305 experts in the field, including Landecker Fellow Ayden Férdeline. Ayden was cited both in the executive summary as well as the Press Release for this report.

More online regulation is inevitable given the importance of the Internet economically and socially and the likelihood that digital media will increasingly be used as evidence in legal proceedings,” Ayden explains his thoughts in the report. Simultaneously, however, he questions whether digital media will be regulated in a way that builds trust.

Notably, this is not the first time Ayden was cited as an expert source by the Center. Earlier this year, we could learn from Ayden in a research paper focusing on the future of human agency, which can be found here.
