My clever idea was, as an experiment, to have ChatGPT write an article on the pluses and minuses of generative AI (ChatGPT being the poster-child for generative AI). Alas, someone beat me to the punch.
In a guest essay for the New York Times, Congressman Ted Lieu tasked ChatGPT with writing "an attention-grabbing first paragraph of an Op-Ed on why artificial intelligence should be regulated." The model complied, producing a well-written, compelling argument for the regulation of AI in a matter of seconds.
Citing the impossibility of Congress passing individual laws regarding each specific use of AI, Congressman Lieu went on to propose a non-partisan AI Commission to pave the way, eventually, for a dedicated federal agency to regulate AI. Whether a comprehensive regulatory approach, either through the establishment of a regulatory agency or promulgation of an all-encompassing law like the EU's coming AI Act, is politically feasible in the US is another story (perhaps for ChatGPT to write).
