Elon Musk, Zuckerberg and others in the US Senate to talk about artificial intelligence

The US administration is aware of not keeping up with the times regarding the control of artificial intelligence, which Europe is trying to do instead , and this is why Chuck Schumer, leader of the Majority of the US Senate, together with union leaders and associations , he organized the closed-door event AI Insight Forum to help politicians in Washington better understand a technology with enormous impact .

It is no coincidence that for the bipartisan meeting the senator has invited a dozen of the most important leaders of the technology sector who will participate in an early morning session with opening statements and a discussion moderated by the senator. These include Elon Musk of Tesla , As far as the political side is concerned , all 100 members of the United States Senate were invited .

There will then be a second session and it is likely to be an accelerated lesson on artificial intelligence . On the other hand, the event was also created to launch a series of training meetings to fill the gaps of Washington politicians in relation to a technology that is not made up of potential alone, just think of the ability of OpenAI’s GPT-4 model to recognize and contextualize objects from an image , but also of many risks.

We need AI experts, ethicists, labor leaders, civil rights groups, academia, defense and beyond to help us with the work ahead. – Chuck Schumer, Democratic Party Senator and Majority Leader of the United States Senate

It’s a shame that the opening discussion of the AI ​​Insight Forum is behind closed doors, but precisely for this reason we hope that it will be the right opportunity , provided that Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg do not come to blows , because the top technological leaders , at the head of companies that have a total capitalization of over 6,500 billion dollars , discuss the hottest topics related to artificial intelligence.

On the other hand, we are faced with a technology that already has an impact on jobs, misinformation and privacy. And this is why Sam Altman , administrator of OpenAI and founder of the same alongside Elon Musk, looks favorably on the creation of an independent regulatory agency . However, IBM and Google don’t seem to like this at all and the AI ​​Insight Forum could be an excellent opportunity to discuss it.
