Lawmakers on Wednesday called for expanding the use of artificial intelligence (AI) to help small businesses and the education system remain competitive in the global economy.
“The future of our competitiveness, on a global level, is dependent upon us embracing this technology,” said Rep. Brenda Lawrence (D-Mich.) at The Hill’s “Powering America’s Economy with AI” event.
Lawrence, a member of the Congressional Artificial Intelligence Caucus, told The Hill’s Steve Clemons that while AI should be promoted in schools to help build a competitive workforce, there are built-in biases in algorithms that must be addressed and removed.
