The Senate Homeland Security Committee holds a hearing on artificial intelligence, in the video published on March 8, 2023, by Forbes Breaking News, as “Rise Of The Machines: Artificial Intelligence Scrutinized By Senate Homeland Security Committee“, below:
For Artificial Intelligence Act of Europe mentioned in the video above, please refer to the excerpt from wikipedia, in italics, below:
The Artificial Intelligence Act (AI Act) is a regulation proposed on 21 April 2021 by the European Commission which aims to introduce a common regulatory and legal framework for artificial intelligence. Its scope encompasses all sectors (except for military), and to all types of artificial intelligence. As a piece of product regulation, the proposal does not confer rights on individuals, but regulates the providers of artificial intelligence systems, and entities making use of them in a professional capacity.
The proposed regulation classifies artificial intelligence applications by risk, and regulates them accordingly. Low-risk applications are not regulated at all, with Member States largely precluded via maximum harmonisation from regulating them further and existing national laws relating to the regulation of design or use of such systems disapplied. A voluntary code of conduct scheme for such low risk systems is envisaged, although not present from the outset. Medium and high-risk systems would require compulsory conformity assessment, undertaken as self-assessment by the provider, before being put on the market. Some especially critical applications which already require conformity assessment to be supervised under existing EU law, for example for medical devices, would the provider’s self-assessment under AI Act requirements to be considered by the notified body conducting the assessment under that regulation, such as the Medical Devices Regulation.
The proposal also would place prohibitions on certain types of applications, namely remote biometric recognition, applications that subliminally manipulate persons, applications that exploit vulnerabilities of certain groups in a harmful way, and social credit scoring. For the first three, an authorisation regime context of law enforcement is proposed, but social scoring would be banned completely.
The act also proposes the introduction of a European Artificial Intelligence Board which will encourage national cooperation and ensure that the regulation is respected.
Like the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the AI Act could become a global standard. It is already having impact beyond Europe; in September 2021, Brazil’s Congress passed a bill that creates a legal framework for artificial intelligence.
The European Council adopted its general approach on the AI Act on 6 December 2022. Germany supports the Council’s position but still sees some need for further improvement as formulated in an accompanying statement by the member state.

ChatGPT, the powerful new AI chatbot tool that interacts with users in an eerily convincing and conversational way, is being met with mixed reactions. CNN’s Vanessa Yurkevich looks at the risks and benefits of OpenAI’s ambitious project, in the video published on Jan 24, 2023, by CNN, as “He loves artificial intelligence. Hear why he is issuing a warning about ChatGPT“, below:
Dr. Li Jiang is a director of Stanford AIRE program. Many of you think ChatGPT started the era of AI. But, Dr. Jiang says it started already. AI seems much better than we do. It seems it can solve many problems. Then, what can we do? How can we survive from AI? How should we do? Dr. Jiang suggest this method for us who are facing the era of AI, in the video published on March 2, 2023, by EO, as “Survival Strategies in the Era of AI Taught by Stanford | Stanford AIRE Director“, below:
How far away are we from AGI? Does OpenAI have the right approach? Or will someone else get there first? In the video published on Feb 25, 2023, by Alex Chao, as “From AI to AGI: OpenAI’s path towards Artificial General Intelligence“, below:

What is a large language model? How can it be used to enhance your business? In this conversation, Ali Rowghani, Managing Director of YC Continuity, talks with Raza Habib, CEO of Humanloop, about the cutting-edge AI powering innovations today—and what the future may hold. They discuss how large language models like Open AI’s GPT-3 work, why fine-tuning is important for customizing models to specific use cases, and the challenges involved with building apps using these models. If you’re curious about the ethical implications of AI, Raza shares his predictions about the impact of this quickly developing technology on the industry and the world at large,in the video published on Feb 28, 2023, by Y Combinator, as “The REAL potential of generative AI“, below:
Artificial intelligence is changing health care. It promises better diagnoses and fewer mistakes and all in less time. While some associate AI with a frightening dystopian future, many doctors see it as a source of support. To help them care for patients, doctors are programming apps and supplying AI with data. At Berlin’s Charité hospital, Professor Surjo Soekadar is researching how neurotechnology might support paralysis patients in their everyday lives – for example, via assistance systems that are controlled via their thoughts. This could offer hope to people like Guido Schule and Anne Nitzer. Nitzer had a stroke shortly after the birth of her second child and has been unable to move or speak since then – even though she is fully conscious. At Vienna General Hospital (AKH) Professor Ursula Schmidt-Erfurth has already developed an AI-based diagnostic tool that has been licensed for use. Nowadays, she is researching how AI could improve both the diagnosis and the treatment of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). This chronic eye disease can lead to loss of vision – even with treatment. This is a fate that Oskar Zlamala could face. But since the retiree began treatment at the AKH Vienna, he is hoping that it might be possible to halt the progression of his illness. Computer science experts and medics are also working together to help the Essen University Hospital go digital. Dr. Felix Nensa and Professor Arzu Oezcelik are improving care for transplant patients with the help of artificial intelligence. AI can calculate the size of organs, like the liver, for example, much more precisely and more quickly than people – and thereby improve outcomes and the safety of the procedure, in the video published on Dec 13, 2022, by DW Documentary, as “Doctors, apps and artificial intelligence _ The future of medicine | DW Documentary“, below:
