On Thursday, Senator Michael Bennet presented a bill that would create a Task Force to examine U.S. policy on artificial intelligence and determine how to best reduce threats to privacy and civil liberties, as well as due process.
ChatGPT, and other AIs, have been used to create text, images, and other content for years. This has caused a worldwide rush to determine if and how should regulate.
Teachers in Washington have expressed concern about the use of this cheating device by teachers.
The AI Task Force will identify regulatory oversight gaps in AI, and if necessary, recommend reforms.
Bennet, a Democrat in Colorado, said that there will be a great deal of education about this set of problems because they are not well understood. There will be a lot more improvisation, and iterative methods to tackle this problem because AI is new for everyone in government.
The bill would create a task force that includes an official from Office of Management and Budget and National Institute of Standards and Technology, as well as officers of privacy and civil rights from Departments of Justice and State, Treasury and Defense, and other executive agencies.
According to the bill, the taskforce would work for 18-months, then issue a report, and shut down.
