Ohio state is employing AI to reform state regulative landscape – the algorithm will analyze the Ohio Revised Code (ORC) and the Ohio Administrative Code (OAC) and help identify redundant regulations.
State governor office representative Joshua Eck shared that Ohio must be the first state with such initiative, given that they have no information on “state using a tool like this on this scale”.
The AI tool is expected to save time and costs for the state, and breakeven the $1.2 million budget on the Common Sense Initiative project led by the governor Jon Husted, in partnership with InnovateOhio.
The project has been implemented as a attempt to meet new Senate Bill, that requires to reduce the number of regulations by 30% by 2022. Reading through all regulations would take enormous time, that is why the state is opting for AI, explained the governor Jon Husted:
“Ohio has over 200 years of rules and regulations that have been patched together in a way that no one person or team of people can fully understand them. With our new AI tool, any regulatory topic can be researched and analyzed in seconds. We are going to use this new tool to bring comprehensive regulatory reform to Ohio”
With positive reaction from state business representatives and citizens, who can not object to weeding out unnecessary regulations, other states may soon follow the Ohio’s path.
