Technologists and advocates are again set to visit Capitol Hill on Tuesday to discuss with Senate leaders the perils and promises of artificial intelligence.
Venture capitalists Marc Andreessen, co-founder and general partner of Andreessen Horowitz, and John Doerr, chair of Kleiner Perkins, will be among the 21 attendees at the second AI Insights Forum hosted by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., according to a spokesperson for his office.
The session is a continuation of the Majority Leader’s effort to get the chamber up to speed on AI to determine how best to approach AI regulation. It will likely include very different viewpoints on what the government’s role should be in regulating AI.
Andreessen recently shared his perspective on AI in what he called The Techno-Optimist Manifesto.
“We believe any deceleration of AI will cost lives,” he wrote in the blog post. “Deaths that were preventable by the AI that was prevented from existing is a form of murder.”
While that idea may resonate with some lawmakers, especially when it comes to remaining competitive against China on AI, others present at Tuesday’s discussion will likely feel differently.
Other tech leaders such as Micron
Advocates slated to attend include NAACP President and CEO Derrick Johnson and AFL-CIO Technology Institute Director Amanda Ballantyne.
