The Biden administration is seeking to figure out how to regulate the emergent field of artificial intelligence (AI), looking for ways to nurture its potential for economic growth and national security and protect against its potential dangers. The sudden emergence of the AI chatbot ChatGPT late last year and other tools have jumpstarted investment in the sector. New generative AI tools are able to create text, music, images and computer code that resembles content created by humans.
The Biden administration wants commitments from private companies to address the possible risks of AI. Biden discussed at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco with Tristan Harris, executive director of the Center for Human Technology; Jim Steyer, the CEO of Common Sense Media; and Joy Buolamwin, founder of the Algorithmic Justice League, among others.
