Feb. 14: AI Policy and Stakeholder Tracking Report

Driving The Day

Today is February 14, 2024, and here are the key policymaker and stakeholder actions on AI you need to know: Capitol Hill insiders suggest the prospects of Congress passing a comprehensive AI bill this year are low, but that hasn’t stopped individual members from introducing more narrowly-focused legislation, such as Sen. Gary Peters’ (D-MI) proposal that aims to bolster the AI workforce pipeline in the United States. Meanwhile, Microsoft and OpenAI discovered and blocked state-affiliated hackers, including from China and Russia, who were using the companies’ AI services to facilitate cyber-attacks. Finally, gun control advocates created AI-generated messages using the voices of child gun violence victims to lobby Congress for changes in gun laws.

In this issue:

  • Washington in Focus: Perceived gaps in AI robocall ban are leading to pressure on Congress, election officials.

  • Around the Nation: States are introducing 50 AI-related bills per week, according to Axios.

  • Across the Pond: London’s Mayor, Sadiq Khan, was shaken by a pro-Palestine deepfake of him.

  • Global Highlights: Australia moves closer to mandatory artificial intelligence restrictions.

  • Outside Views: A new report suggests the biggest online threat to 2024 elections is social media, not AI.
