Laws For AI – The Biden Administration Discusses Possible Legislation For ChatGPT
With OpenAI’s next update for ChatGPT underway, several lawmakers are now questioning whether these AI tools can and should be regulated. A few weeks ago, famous faces such as Elon Musk, Andrew Yang, Steve Wozniak, and several more signed a petition pleading that the U.S. government enact a six-month moratorium on developing AI systems, citing uncertainty revolving around the power and influence AI has created. Now, the Biden Administration is planning to take a stand on the basis that AI tools such as ChatGPT can threaten to spread misinformation or discrimination. On April 11th, the Commerce Department put forward the idea the new AI tools should undergo a verification process to deem them risky or safe.
Even China, one of the countries spurring the advancement of AI, has proposed strict limitations that vet each new AI tool to ensure it can’t diminish state power or social order. Even Microsoft, one of the biggest backers behind ChatGPT’s creator OpenAI, supports legislation that will put AI development under scrutiny. Nevertheless, the next 60 days will mark a flood of suggestions from federal agencies and third parties, leading to the thoughts behind the legislation that will be seen in the short future.
