Biden’s AI executive order and a CIA veteran on North Korean cyber ops

President Joe Biden’s sprawling executive order on artificial intelligence has finally arrived. The lengthy document contains a long list of new requirements. Leading AI companies have to report training runs and the results of red team tests. A slew of agencies are tasked with developing new standards and rules to address AI risks. And a long list of reports have been commissioned. FedScoop reporter Rebecca Heilweil sits down with Elias Groll to discuss how the new order will reshape AI and how government uses it. Yong Lee, a 20-year veteran of the CIA and a long-time North Korea watcher, also joins the show to discuss how Pyongyang uses its hacking corps as a tool of statecraft.
