The Department of Justice is increasing its focus on the use of artificial intelligence to commit crimes. Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco said the Criminal Division will “incorporate assessment of disruptive technology risks — including risks associated with AI — into its guidance on Evaluation of Corporate Compliance Programs.“

White-collar criminals who deliberately utilize AI technology to commit fraud, fix prices, or manipulate the market will be subject to harsher penalties.

Deputy AG Monaco said, “All new technologies are a double-edged sword — but AI may be the sharpest blade yet. It holds great promise to improve our lives — but great peril when criminals use it to supercharge their illegal activities, including corporate crime.“

She added, “While we work to responsibly harness the benefits of AI, we are alert to its risks, and we will be using our tools in new ways to address them.“

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For discernment for Deputy Attorney General Monaco as she facilitates the Justice AI initiative.
  • For Attorney General Merrick Garland to receive God’s guidance as he heads the DOJ.
  • For the president and members of the administration as they seek to ensure legal compliance in the use of artificial intelligence.
