OpenAI CEO Sam Altman, co-founder of the company that created artificial intelligence software ChatGPT, attended a hearing in the US Senate on Tuesday to discuss the technology’s risks and opportunities. Altman shared the concerns expressed by some senators, hoping that the issue would be regulated through appropriate legislation. In particular, he identified as a “sensitive topic of concern” the potential use of artificial intelligence software to interfere with normal electoral processes. Altman said, “If this technology is used the wrong way, it can become very ‘wrong’. We want to be clear about this and we want to work with the government to prevent this from happening.”

At the hearing, Altman proposed creating a government agency to offer licenses to develop AI models and could revoke them from companies that do not meet government standards. According to Altman, it will also be necessary to define minimum levels of security, organize external evaluation committees made up of experts, and test the software to ensure that it cannot “self-generate or develop exponentially”.
