Forums on Possible Regulation of AI Kick Off in September

​Starting Sept. 13, experts and business leaders from the private sector will participate in closed-door listening sessions hosted by U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., to address possible federal regulation of AI. We’ve gathered articles on the news from
SHRM Online and other media outlets.

Participants Include Tech CEOs

Executives participating at the event will include Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai, Meta Platforms CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Tesla CEO Elon Musk. Other forum participants include Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang and Open AI CEO Sam Altman, according to Schumer’s office.

“We need the best of the best sitting at the table: the top AI developers, executives, scientists, advocates, community leaders, workers, national security experts—all together in one room, doing years of work in a matter of months,” Schumer said.


Intent of Forums

The listening sessions are intended to educate members of Congress on the risks posed by AI regarding jobs, the spread of disinformation and intellectual property theft. Lawmakers will also learn about opportunities created by AI, including in research on diseases. The meeting will include members from civil rights and labor groups.

Nine Sessions

The event will be the first of nine meetings Schumer has said will begin this fall. The sessions will address the hardest questions that regulations on AI will seek to address, including how to protect workers and copyright.

Federal Public Steps to Regulate AI Thus Far

On April 11, the U.S. Department of Commerce announced a request for public comment to determine how regulators can help make AI systems more trustworthy.

In addition, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the U.S. Department of Justice, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the Federal Trade Commission have highlighted their commitment to enforcing existing civil rights and consumer protection laws as they apply to AI in the workplace.

AI Regulation in the States

In August, the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) released a report titled “Approaches to Regulating Artificial Intelligence: A Primer,” which highlights the current landscape of AI regulation across the country and weighs the benefits and risks of deploying AI in certain sectors, such as human resources. This report was developed by NCSL’s bipartisan
Task Force on Cybersecurity and Privacy Work Group.
