Biden administration considers crackdown on AI tools such as ChatGPT


The Biden administration is edging toward rules on artificial-intelligence tools such as ChatGPT over fears the technology could be used to spread falsehoods and discrimination.

On Tuesday, the Commerce Department issued a formal public request for comment on accountability measures for technology that includes potentially risky new AI models. Such models would be required to go through a certification process before they are released.

The quasi-regulation of AI comes amid a wave of developments in the technology by nearly every major company. Developers and customers are lauding AI’s accuracy in analyzing reams of data and vastly improving operational efficiencies.

But critics warn that tools like ChatGPT — much like any new technology — can be misused to commit crimes or spread harmful misinformation.
