There are some who believe that congress should become more heavily involved in how businesses are using artificial intelligence (AI). Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) and Sen. Todd Young (R-Ind.) shared this sentiment on Tuesday at a panel on that topic sponsored by the Washington Post.
Young and Cantwell are sponsors of the Fundamentally Understanding The Usability and Realistic Evolution of Artificial Intelligence Act of 2017 (or FUTURE of AI Act for short). This act includes provisions to make the US more competitive, while protecting the public’s privacy rights.
