Artificial intelligence (AI) is a rapidly evolving technology with significant implications for society. As lawmakers on both sides of Congress wrestle with how to regulate AI, it’s crucial to take the time to learn as much as possible about the technology before considering regulation.
Senator Gary Peters, the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, is planning a series of hearings on AI to educate members of Congress about the technology. Peters believes that gathering as much information as possible about AI is crucial before imposing any regulation.
Impeding innovation is not the goal, Peters notes, and AI offers a long list of benefits that policymakers must consider. Peters introduced a bill in 2020 that was signed into law, which aims to educate government employees who procure AI technology for their offices about its capabilities and risks.
