US senators propose AI bills for transparency and innovation

Lawmakers in the U.S. have put forward two bipartisan bills that aim to tackle issues related to transparency and the advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AI).

On June 8, Senators Gary Peters (D) and Mike Braun (R) as well as James Lankford (R) presented the first bill, mandating the government to be open about its utilization of Artificial Intelligence.

Under this policy, US government organizations would be required to let people know when they employ AI to communicate with them, as well as a method for citizens to challenge any choices made by AI.

Braun asserted.

Democratic Senators Michael Bennet and Mark Warner, joined by Republican Senator Todd Young, proposed a bill to create an Office of Global Competition Analysis.

Bennet noted that the purpose of this new division is to ensure the U.S. remains a leader in AI development.

Following Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s announcement of three upcoming AI briefings to educate lawmakers on the technology, the bills have been introduced.

Legislators around the world are starting to talk about introducing regulations concerning AI.

This week, British authorities emphasized that AI models should be regulated in the same way as the pharmaceutical and nuclear power sectors. On the same day, another British official cautioned that if these models are not kept in check within the next two years, they may pose a threat to humanity.

Meanwhile, in Europe, legislators are concluding the European Union’s Artificial Intelligence Act, a complete package of guidelines for the production and utilization of generative AI.

European regulators have adopted an equally expeditious attitude towards regulating AI, recently announcing that they may mandate labeling of all content created by AI.
