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.
