Democratic Senator Michael Bennet introduced a bill that would create a task force to revise US policies on artificial intelligence (AI). During a period of 18 months, the task force would identify shortfalls in regulatory oversight of AI and recommend necessary reforms in its final report. The task force would include an official from the Office of Management and Budget, the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the Office of Science and Technology Policy as well as privacy and civil liberties officers from the Departments of Justice, State, Treasury, Defense, and other executive branch agencies.
‘There’s going to have to be a lot of education around this set of issues because they’re not well understood,’ stated Senator Michael Bennet, while also noting that ‘there’s going to be a lot of improvisation and iterative approaches to try to wrestle with this because AI is so new to everyone in the government’.
