Teo Yi-Ling, Senior Fellow with the Centre of Excellence for National Security, RSIS, wrote in her commentary that AI has been developing incrementally for the last six decades, but is currently in an explosive period of growth. The call for a unique set of laws to establish regulatory bright lines has been heard for some time, as current legal frameworks are deemed insufficient to accommodate the existence of AI and its potential consequences. However, given the manner in which legal systems are structured, the law is always caught on the back foot in providing answers for novel situations. She suggested to follow the Potter Box model for discussion and eventual decision-making, originally developed by Ralph B. Potter, Jr., professor of social ethics emeritus at Harvard Divinity School.
