(WatchDogReport.org) – Artificial Intelligence (AI) is causing voter anxiety over whether America’s politicians have enough real, collective intelligence to regulate the mushrooming concept effectively.
Whether or not Democrats and Republicans have what it will take in terms of ideas and cooperation, AI is everywhere. It is a technology growing rapidly from within the bowels of many nations, with some embracing it and others fearing it.
House and Senate lawmakers are holding meetings with technology experts to learn about AI and explore the implications of its reach. Elon Musk and Steve Wozniak have been major players in the conversation thus far, and they strongly recommend a “pause” in the development of AI. Warning of irreversible dangers, they have emphasized the potentially harmful effects on society if the technology is not first fully probed.
Other experts insist that such a pause would put the United States at a serious disadvantage as AI continues to develop in other countries. Proposing that China will immediately assume the lead in ways that will put America under its thumb, Dr. Jason Matheny suggests that democratic nations should roll out AI.
Matheny is in charge of the National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence. His information shows that China is pursuing a socialist-minded AI. If the Biden Administration puts AI on pause and China keeps going, China’s version will become the standard. Western ethics and leadership will not have a fighting chance as Chinese-based AI extends to the rest of the world.
Meanwhile, other governmental agencies are independently testing AI’s future. The nation’s military branches are investigating the potential pros and cons of using AI directly on the battlefield, both for strategy and observation. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is also examining AI as it relates to consumer safety.
Biden has emphasized that his main concern is economic equality and how AI could unfairly influence opportunities for citizens in various tax brackets.
