Senate Majority Leader to Convene Industry Leaders, Labor Groups at AI Forum

Top technology industry leaders and labor and civil rights groups will attend a closed-door gathering hosted by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer on Sept. 13 to field lawmaker questions on artificial intelligence.

Schumer’s office told Nextgov/FCW that confirmed guests include Google CEO Sundar Pichai, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, NVIDIA President Jensen Huang, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk.

The event is expected to be the first in a series of “AI Insight Forums.”

Recently, Schumer said the government should take responsibility for regulating AI as the private sector may be disincentivized to do so independently. He noted that his proposed policy framework could aid in ensuring safety as the technology develops.

Meanwhile, some members of the House want to set data privacy rules for AI systems. In an opinion piece published in Newsweek on Tuesday, Rep. Suzan DelBene advocated for applying a national privacy standard to OpenAI’s ChatGPT and other large language models whose algorithms are trained on potentially sensitive online user data, Nextgov/FCW reported.
