WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said on Tuesday he had scheduled three briefings for senators on artificial intelligence, including the first classified briefing. on this topic.

In a letter to colleagues on Tuesday, the Democratic leader said senators needed a deeper understanding of artificial intelligence.

“AI is changing our world, and experts have told us over and over again that it will have a profound impact on everything from national security to our classrooms to our workforce, including the possibility of significant job changes,” Schumer said.

The first briefing letter is a general overview of AI, the second will look at how to achieve American leadership in AI, and the third press conference, which will be classified, will deal with issues and defense and intelligence implications, the letter reads.

He said the date and time of the hearing will be announced later.

Schumer launched an effort in April to establish rules on artificial intelligence to address education and national security issues, as the use of programs like ChatGPT became widespread.

ChatGPT, an AI program that recently gained public attention for its ability to write quick answers to many types of queries, has caught the attention of US lawmakers. It has become the fastest growing consumer app in history with over 100 million monthly active users.

Schumer’s plan will need approval from Congress and the White House and could still take months or more. However, this is the most concrete step the US government can take to adopt new regulations to address growing concerns about AI.
