US Senator Calls on AI Companies to Prioritize Security and Combat Bias

The chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee has requested several artificial intelligence (AI) companies prioritize security measures and combat bias while responsibly rolling out new technologies. Democratic Senator Mark Warner is concerned about the potential risks posed by AI technology and has sent letters to the CEOs of OpenAI, Scale AI, Meta Platforms, Alphabet’s Google, Apple, Stability AI, Midjourney, Anthropic, Percipient.ai, and Microsoft.

Warner believes that regulation is necessary in this field, and not just industry commitments. The increasing use of AI across the economy and the possibility of large language models being integrated into existing systems, from healthcare to finance sectors, underline the importance of putting security at the forefront of AI companies’ work.

Earlier this month, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer launched an effort to establish AI rules and address national security and education concerns. Schumer has drafted and circulated a framework outlining a new regulatory regime to prevent potentially catastrophic damage to the country while making sure the US advances and leads in this transformative technology.

ChatGPT, an AI program that recently grabbed public attention for its ability to write answers quickly to a wide range of queries, has attracted US lawmakers’ attention. It has become the fastest-growing consumer application in history, with over 100 million monthly active users. Microsoft is a major investor in OpenAI, the creator of ChatGPT. The software giant and Google have invested billions of dollars in AI to gain an edge amid heightened competition in Silicon Valley.
