AI technology is rapidly advancing, and it has become increasingly important for lawmakers to stay ahead of the curve. Representative Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) is doing just that with a bill he wrote using ChatGPT, an AI system designed by OpenAI. The proposed legislation would recommend new federal regulations for artificial intelligence in order to protect citizens from potential harms posed by the technology.
The bill focuses on ensuring that AI systems are transparent and accountable when making decisions about people’s lives or livelihoods; preventing discrimination against certain groups; promoting safety standards in autonomous vehicles; protecting privacy rights related to data collection; and establishing methods of oversight over how companies use AI technologies. In addition, it calls for research into ethical considerations around the development of these technologies as well as ways they can be used responsibly without infringing upon civil liberties or creating unfair advantages among users who have access to them.
Rep. Lieu believes this legislation will help ensure that we don’t fall behind other countries when it comes to regulating emerging tech like artificial intelligence—and he hopes Congress will pass his bill soon so we can remain competitive in this area while still protecting our citizens’ rights and safety from any potential risks associated with these powerful tools.
