Chuck Schumer gathers AI leaders to push for a common policy

Chuck Schumer, the majority leader in the United States Senate, is set to host a closed-door forum on artificial intelligence (AI) on September 13th, as reported by Axios on Monday, citing sources. The forum is expected to last two to three hours and will feature technology leaders such as Tesla CEO Elon Musk, Meta Platforms CEO Mark Zuckerberg, and Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai.

Neither Musk nor Zukerberg and Pinchai are exactly leaders of AI industry. In addition to these figures, the closed-door forum is also expected to include OpenAI CEO Sam Altman and Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, according to Axios.

Back in June, Schumer hinted that the forum would “lay a new foundation for AI policy.”

“We need the best of the best at the table: the top AI developers, executives, scientists, advocates, community leaders, employees, national security experts – all in one room, working a month’s worth of years,” Schumer stated, as reported on the Senate Democrats’ website.

The forum aims to bring together key players in the AI field to discuss and potentially shape the future direction of AI policy, recognizing the significance of AI in various sectors and its impact on society, economy, and security.
