Earlier this month, Sens. John Thune (R-SD) and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) led a group of bipartisan Senators in introducing the Artificial Intelligence (AI) Research, Innovation, and Accountability Act of 2023. The legislation is designed to establish a framework to bolster innovation while bringing greater transparency, accountability, and security to the development and operation of the highest-impact applications of AI.
CTT Co-Founder Roslyn Layton welcomed the bipartisan bill with a statement that was shared by Sen. Thune.
She said: “China Tech Threat applauds the important bipartisan work of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation to examine critical policy issues of AI. We support the Committee’s continued engagement with stakeholders to craft policy which supports AI research and innovation. As we’ve seen in other areas – including telecom and export control policy – the U.S. must strike the right balance to be positioned to lead globally and not inadvertently cede that leadership or critical technologies to adversaries like China. We look forward to working with Senator Thune and the bills co-sponsors on this important issue.”
