Legislators Introduce Two Artificial Intelligence Bills in the Senate

Two separate artificial intelligence bills were introduced in the Senate on Thursday in a bid to regulate AI use in the country. Sens. Gary Peters, Mike Braun and James Lankford introduced a bill that would require agencies to devise an appeals system for decisions made by AI and to exercise transparency when the agency is using AI to interact with people, U.S. News reported.

In a statement, Braun said the federal government must remain proactive and transparent when it comes to AI utilization.

Sens. Michael Bennet, Mark Warner and Todd Young also introduced a measure to establish an Office of Global Competition Analysis to ensure that the U.S. remains a leader in AI development, a statement from Bennet’s office said. Bennet said the country could not afford to lose its competitive edge in emerging technologies such as semiconductors, quantum computing and AI, to China and other competitors.
