Senator Schumer plans to present a framework for AI legislation in the coming weeks

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announced on Wednesday that he will provide a framework for addressing the risks and potential benefits of artificial intelligence in the coming weeks, which will be translated into incremental legislation.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announced on Wednesday that he will present a framework for AI legislation for tackling the risks and potential benefits of artificial intelligence in the coming weeks, which will be translated into piecemeal legislation.

Concerned about how AI could affect elections or Americans, the Biden administration and lawmakers have pushed for legislation, but a polarized US Congress has made little progress. Europe is ahead, with lawmakers there developing AI regulations.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announced on Wednesday that he will present a framework for tackling the risks and potential benefits of artificial intelligence in the coming weeks, which will be translated into piecemeal legislation.

Schumer stated that the roadmap would be based on expert input and would address sticky issues related to artificial intelligence, such as its impact on intellectual property and labor rights, healthcare, and “doomsday scenarios.”

“In this roadmap, which will be released in a few weeks, you will see a lot of good guidelines and ideas for how Congress should proceed,” he said during an interview at an AI forum in Washington. “But you will see different committees taking a role and translating that, concretizing that, into legislation,” he said.

US officials have cautioned that AI can increase the risk of bias and enable election manipulation through deep fakes.

They are also concerned that sophisticated AI models in the hands of rogue actors may be used to help create bioweapons or launch muscular cyberattacks, with a particular focus on China.

“If we do nothing, China with a whole different system—their AI is interested in things like facial recognition and surveillance and stuff like that—could get ahead of us,” Schumer warned, underscoring the potential for AI to negatively impact elections.

Schumer stated that lawmakers would address the issues gradually. “Some committees are a little further ahead than others. We are not going to wait for one big, comprehensive plan that covers everything,” he stated.
