Episode 6 | AI compliance and regulation with Laura Bisesto of Nextdoor

I interviewed Laura Bisesto (global head of policy and privacy at Nextdoor) in January 2024 to get her advice for AI startups that are just starting out.

We talked about compliance, how to recognize when you need in-house help, and the overall importance of planning for worst case scenarios.

She also had some thoughts for rolling out new AI-powered features, creating user advisory boards, and navigating a patchwork of state, federal and international laws.

Here’s a breakdown of our conversation:

  • “You don’t have to be an ethicist to start an AI ethics program..” (2:44)
  • don’t wait for lawyers: work on safety and trust from Day 1 (4:44)
  • how Nextdoor developed and launched its generative AI principles (7:21)
  • evaluate and reduce risk before rolling out AI-powered features (9:05)
  • why product teams should oversee risk management (10:54)
  • "the regulatory environment is evolving" (12:25)
  • the Biden administration's October 2023 executive order on AI (15:04)
  • how to position your startup for compliance with future regulation (18:32)
  • trickery and a lack of transparency can lead to expensive mistakes (22:22)
  • be careful when sharing user data between different jurisdictions (23:45)
  • the most common trust, safety and compliance mistakes AI founders make (25:23)
