Regulation to innovate: what AI needs in Mexico

For years we have begun to build the foundations of AI. We have considered and imagined its capabilities and scope. And at the end of last year, we reached a point of no return with the departure of ChatGPT. Although this is just one of the many applications of AI, called a massive language model (LLM), ChatGPT normalized AI.

In Mexico we are accelerating the pace to define how we want to coexist with these changes in technology. On April 21, the National Artificial Intelligence Alliance (ANIA), coordinated by Senator Alejandra Lagunes, was presented in the Senate of the Republic, with the purpose of creating a legislative framework that allows regulating and strengthening the AI ​​ecosystem in Mexico . I am proud to be a founding ally of this great initiative.

Working groups were formed to fulfill the objective of ANIA: to contribute to the design of public policies, possible regulation and the governance model in Mexico. These tables were defined based on a public vote, 6 major themes were obtained: Public Policies and Rights, Education and Labor Markets, Cybersecurity and Risk Management, Gender, Inclusion and Social Responsibility, Infrastructure and Data and Innovation and Industry.

Last Friday, I had the pleasure of moderating the third cybersecurity and artificial intelligence panel. Several legislators participated in this table; Senator Alejandra Lagunes, Senator Gustavo Madero and Representative Javier López Casarín. From the private sector: Dr. Elena Estavillo, Dr. Anahiby Becerril, Alejandra Pineda, Ana Cecilia Pérez, Oswaldo Díaz, Claudia Escoto, Ivan Díaz, Abel Coronado, Pablo Corona, Iván Rodríguez, Xavier Careaga, Ernesto Ibarra, Salma Jalife, among others . As well as representatives of SEGOB, INAI and INEGI.

Everyone provided valuable comments. In conclusion, it is proposed to review the current regulatory frameworks that are already being implemented in the world, and review what we already have in law that can be adapted to the use of AI. As well as, collaborate between the public and private sectors and between international organizations to be able to innovate and establish the necessary sanctions in law.

AI is advancing and will advance exponentially in the next ten or twenty years, it will change the way we see the world and interact in it. Therefore, it will be necessary to continue with training and awareness about its use and implementation in different sectors, and base ourselves on international standards for its regulation. The latest taking into account AI governance from a multidisciplinary approach.

These exercises are very valuable for the AI ​​ecosystem in Mexico. If we want to foster innovation and propose AI governance, it will be necessary to work together and generate these exchanges. I am very grateful to everyone who has connected to the tables and who has participated with commitment and enthusiasm.
