Top Senate Dem: Congress ‘must move quickly’ on artificial intelligence legislation

WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer says Congress “must move quickly” to regulate artificial intelligence and has convened a bipartisan group of senators to work on legislation. Schumer says the group met on Wednesday and that his staff has already met with close to 100 CEOs, scientists and academics who deal with the technology. The unusual legislative push from the Senate majority leader comes as potentially groundbreaking products like AI chatbot ChatGPT have entered the marketplace and can in many ways mimic human behavior. Last week, the head of the artificial intelligence company that makes ChatGPT said government intervention will be critical to mitigating the risks.
