OpenAI CEO Urges US Lawmakers to Regulate ChatGPT


OpenAI CEO Urges US Lawmakers to Regulate ChatGPT

Sam Altman, the CEO of OpenAI, the pioneering company behind the advanced chatbot ChatGPT, addressed a US Senate committee on Tuesday, advocating for the regulation of artificial intelligence (AI) and highlighting both its potential and pitfalls.


Altman emphasized the rapid emergence of numerous AI models in recent months, including ChatGPT, which can generate remarkably human-like responses but may also exhibit significant inaccuracies. Recognizing the ethical concerns associated with AI, Altman proposed the establishment of a new agency to oversee the licensing of AI companies.


As a prominent figure in the burgeoning AI industry, Altman has been vocal about the need for increased regulation. He compared the impact of AI to that of the printing press, acknowledging its transformative potential while also acknowledging the risks it poses. Altman highlighted the potential economic consequences of AI, such as job displacement and layoffs in certain sectors.


During the hearing, some senators raised the need for legislation that would facilitate legal action against OpenAI. Altman expressed concerns about the potential misuse of AI, particularly in terms of disseminating targeted misinformation during elections, thereby threatening democracy. He put forth various recommendations for the regulation of the AI industry, including the issuance and revocation of permits for AI companies, as well as independent audits for firms like OpenAI.


Republican Senator Josh Hawley viewed the technology as revolutionary but drew a comparison to the invention of the "atomic bomb." Democrat Senator Richard Blumenthal stressed the importance of maximizing the positive aspects of AI while minimizing potential harm. He highlighted the opportunity for Congress to act, citing the previous failure to address issues related to social media.


The testimony indicated bipartisan support for the establishment of a new regulatory body. However, given the rapid pace of technological advancement, concerns were raised about the agency's ability to effectively keep pace with the evolving AI landscape.
