ChatGPT chatbot creator and OpenAI CEO Sam Altman has called on the U.S. Congress to regulate artificial intelligence technology. BBC.
Artificial intelligence can be used for the benefit of humanity, this technology can be useful in many areas – from medicine to combating the climate crisis. However, regulation is vital to it.
“In my opinion, if this technology goes astray, then it will go the wrong way at all … it is important for us to declare this,” Altman said. “We want to work with the government to make sure that doesn’t happen.”
He also suggested that companies like OpenAI be required to undergo an independent audit.
American politicians fear that the use of artificial intelligence will have unpredictable consequences for society. For example, this may result in job losses or the use of content generators to publish false information by foreign sources.
Senator Richard Blumenthal opined that AI regulation should not be slowed down. He cited the phenomenon of social networks as an example. At the time of their emergence, no one thought about regulation, so now it is much more difficult to develop regulation for them: “We need to maximize the positive impact. Congress now has a choice. We had the same choice when faced with social media. We couldn’t take advantage of this moment.”
The senators supported the creation of a regulatory body to oversee artificial intelligence technology, but are not confident that the oversight body will keep up with the booming phenomenon. For example, the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has not been very successful in regulating the cryptocurrency industry.
