Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, Sundar Pichai to attend event on Artificial intelligence next month

US Senate Majority leader Chuck Schumer will host major tech leaders like Tesla CEO Elon Musk, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai on September 13 for an artificial intelligence forum. Other prominent tech leaders invited for the event include OpenAI CEO Sam Altman and Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, Nvidia co-founder Jensen Huang, and former Google CEO Eric Schmidt.

The closed-door gathering is the first of the AI Insight Forums by Schumer and is part of his plan to give the Congress more control over the future of AI. 

The Republican leader had hinted at laying down a ‘new foundation for AI policy’ in June. 

“We need the best of the best sitting at the table: the top AI developers, executives, scientists, advocates, community leaders, workers, national security experts – all together in one room, doing years of work in a matter of months,” Schumer was quoted as saying by Reuters. 

Senators earlier this summer attended three briefings on AI to help initiate the effort. Schumer, a New York Democrat, hasn’t set a deadline for legislation, but has expressed an interest in bipartisan legislation this session of Congress. He’s said that the Chinese Community Party’s release in April of its own approach to regulating AI is a “wake-up call” for action in the US.
