Congressional Action on AI

A group of senators led by Majority Leader Schumer met with President Biden to discuss next steps in Artificial Intelligent (AI) regulations. The President issued an executive order to set a standard on safety, security, and transparency of artificial intelligence systems. Under the order, companies that train AI through foundational models that may pose national security and public health risks must reveal the safety results to U.S. agencies. The Senate held hearings and forums this week with business and tech leaders to discuss AI's impact on the workplace, health care, financial services and the justice system. Senator Schumer said the forums are making clear to senators that government must play an active role as AI takes off. "AI development is moving quickly. Adversaries like the Chinese government are moving quickly. So Congress has to act quickly, too.”
