And all that glitters is gold; Only shooting stars break the mold. Another clever lyric from Smashmouth’s song All Star, which is not only a twist of Shakespeare’s famous line, it encourages people on the outside of the popular inner circle to be bold and shine on. In this case, the inner circle is the bipartisan U.S. Senate Artificial Intelligence Caucus, whose leaders are being tapped by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to help figure out how to regulate this scary AI thing. Dutifully, the cool political kids are gathering the cooler industry kids (on September 13, 2023 — didn’t you get the invitation?) to help them work out the best approach to regulating AI. Enter our shooting star: U.S. Senate HELP Committee Ranking Member Bill Cassidy, M.D., who released a white paper about the AI state of play and the best approach to regulate AI in the health, education, and labor sectors. And he is asking others who were not invited to the cool kids’ party what they think. Who believes that all of this will end with sensical, non-stifling regulatory action by the federal government? I’m a believer.
