Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has introduced a detailed 31-page plan to regulate artificial intelligence, created with the help of a bipartisan team including Democratic Senator Martin Heinrich (D-NM) and Republican Senators Mike Rounds (R-SD) and Todd Young (R-IN). The plan proposes a significant $32 billion yearly investment in AI research and development by 2026. It aims to address risks like security threats, discrimination, job loss, and lack of transparency, while also pushing for a national data privacy law and export controls on advanced AI systems.
