Feb. 16: AI Policy and Stakeholder Tracking Report

Driving The Day

Today is February 16, 2024, and here are the key policymaker and stakeholder actions on AI you need to know: In Washington, the House of Representatives is close to officially announcing a new, bipartisan AI working group. Meanwhile, Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA), who will serve as one of the working group’s co-chairs, introduced legislation that would provide grant funding to study the beneficial uses of AI in healthcare. In California, Assemblymember Rebecca Bauer-Kahan (D), who introduced legislation last year to combat AI-caused discrimination, has introduced a revamped version of the legislation this year. In Connecticut, Sen. James Maroney (D) will introduce legislation next week developed with the input of lawmakers in a multi-state AI working group that he leads. Lastly, twenty companies signed the accord announced earlier in the week that aims to address AI deepfakes this election season.
