Congress in the United States questions AI chief about artificial intelligence

Congress in the United States is asking ChatGPT creator Sam Altman for advice on how best to legislate on the use of artificial intelligence on Tuesday, after the technology really took the world by storm at the end of last year.

Sam Altman, who is the CEO of OpenAI, which created the popular chatbot, is to be heard by the Senate Committee on the Judiciary.

The committee’s chairman, Democrat Richard Blumenthal, who is elected to the state of Connecticut, wrote in connection with the summoning of Altman that the hearing was the first step on the road to overseeing the powerful technology of artificial intelligence.

“Artificial intelligence urgently needs rules and safeguards that can address its immense potential and pitfalls,” he wrote.

– I look forward to working with my colleagues to explore common sense standards and principles that can help us navigate this uncharted territory.

Republican Josh Hawley, who also sits on the committee, wrote in that regard that the hearing is a “critical first step toward understanding what Congress should do.”

“Artificial intelligence is becoming transformative in ways we can’t even imagine, with implications for American elections, jobs and security,” he wrote.

In addition to Sam Altman, Christina Montgomery must also be heard. She is vice president of the tech company IBM, which also works with artificial intelligence.

Gary Marcus, professor emeritus of computer science at New York University, will also be heard by the Senate.

Since ChatGPT was launched in November last year, the chatbot has met with both massive praise and criticism.

Skeptics mention, among other things, the massive data collection that is necessary for the chatbot to function. There have also been concerns about whether ChatGPT could end up costing jobs.
