Kanter says DOJ adapting antitrust enforcement for AI


The Department of Justice’s (DOJ) Antitrust Division is examining how its policies and enforcement mechanisms are suited to handle potential issues brought about by the proliferation of use of artificial intelligence (AI).

Jonathan Kanter, head of the Antitrust Division, delivered remarks at an AI workshop at Stanford on Thursday, during which he said the agency was “actively examining the AI ecosystem both through our policy work … and through our enforcement of the Sherman Act and Clayton Act.”

“If firms in the AI ecosystem violate the antitrust laws, the Antitrust Division will have something to say about it,” he said.
