OpenAI CEO Sam Altman will testify before a Senate committee for the first time as a member of the United States Congress next week.
On Tuesday, Altman will testify before the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Privacy, Technology, and the Law on what laws might be needed to protect Americans as the government and businesses begin to employ AI in everything from medical to banking to workplace surveillance.
The hearing will be Altman’s first before Congress, according to the group that announced it.
Altman attended a White House meeting on artificial intelligence last week, when they addressed how to guarantee regulatory safeguards.
When asked if firms agree on rules, Altman told reporters, “We’re surprisingly on the same page on what needs to happen.”
