Do export controls work? And will they work for AI? Meet Emily Weinstein and Tim Hwang. They're research fellows at Georgetown's Center for Security and Emerging Technology (CSET) and have written a paper on the goals of export controls and whether what the US government is trying to achieve with them is clear.
- Did the US inadvertently help China make better missiles?
- How export controls have hurt some US industries' international competitiveness.
- What export controls can - and can't - do to prevent technology from being developed abroad.
- Important questions about the management of bowling alleys and churches.
Here's the paper we discussed: https://cset.georgetown.edu/publication/decoupling-in-strategic-technologies/
