This move was reportedly made to address the country’s security and education as the use of AI such as ChatGPT becomes popular. In addition, Schumer stated that he had already drafted a framework that outlines new regulations. These regulations intend to prevent an extensive damage to the country while making sure that the U.S. still leads in transformative technology.
According to Shepardson, Schumer’s proposal still needs to be approved by the White House and the U.S. Congress which could take several months. Nonetheless, it is the most tangible move that the U.S. federal government may approve to address the developing issues about AI such as ChatGPT. Furthermore, this proposal intends to require companies to let experts assess and inspect AI technologies before any public update or release.
What is ChatGPT?
According to Schulz, ChatGPT is an AI program that recently became popular with the public for its ability to quickly answer a wide range of questions. To date, the application has the fastest-growing number of consumers in history with over 100 million active users per month. Due to this, it has attracted the attention of U.S. lawmakers in particular.
Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O), a huge shareholder in OpenAI that created ChatGPT, and Alphabet Inc’s (GOOGL.O) Google has been investing billions of dollars into AI to gain an advantage despite the growing competition in Silicon Valley. On April 11, China’s cyberspace regulator reportedly disclosed a draft of regulations that will also manage AI services such as ChatGPT.
