Senators Propose Public Education Campaign on Artificial Intelligence

Sens. Todd Young, R-Ind., and Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, have introduced bipartisan legislation tasking the Department of Commerce with developing a public education campaign on artificial intelligence.

The campaign will cover a range of topics, including the benefits and potential risks of AI technology, identifying AI-generated content and the rights individuals possess concerning AI use, Nextgov/FCW reported.

To ensure the campaign’s effectiveness, the legislation requires the Commerce Department to consult with AI experts from academia, research institutions, public-private partnerships and the private sector.

The bill also mandates collaboration with other federal agencies such as the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the National Telecommunications and Information Administration.

Moreover, the commerce secretary must report to congressional committees on campaign activities within a year of the campaign launch.

The proposal aligns with the goals of the Bipartisan Senate AI Working Group, which aims to develop legislation that minimizes risks associated with navigating the challenges and opportunities presented by AI advancements.
