US Chamber of Commerce Calls for AI Regulation
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce on Thursday called for regulation of artificial intelligence technology to ensure it does not hurt growth or become a national security risk, a departure from the business lobbying group’s typical anti-regulatory stance. From a report: While there is little in terms of proposed legislation for AI, the fast-growing artificial intelligence program ChatGPT that has drawn praise for its ability to write answers quickly to a wide range of queries has raised U.S. lawmakers’ concerns about its impact on national security and education.
The Chamber report argues policymakers and business leaders must quickly ramp up their efforts to establish a “risk-based regulatory framework” that will ensure AI is deployed responsibly. It added that AI is projected to add $13 trillion to global economic growth by 2030 and that it has made important contributions such as easing hospital nursing shortages and mapping wildfires to speed emergency management officials’ response. The report emphasized the need to be ready for the technology’s looming ubiquity and potential dangers.
