This Office of the Chairman project, conducted by Professor Cary Coglianese of the University of Pennsylvania School of Law, explored contexts in which agencies might use machine learning and other forms of artificial intelligence (AI) to carry out regulatory functions. It examined the comparative strengths and weaknesses of both human decision making and AI, seeking to identify areas in which agencies should explore using AI. It also considered some of the legal and practical hurdles to deploying AI in the regulatory process.
