Schumer’s Senate AI Insight meeting with Elon Musk and AI tech execs starts off well

By all accounts, the AI Insight Forum organized by Sen. Chuck Schumer with leading AI tech leaders and executives was very productive. There reportedly was a consensus about the need for some government regulation of AI, as the leaders all raised their hands in the affirmative to a question by Schumer. The Senator planned to have legislation before the Senate within months.

Afterwards, Elon Musk told reporters: “There’s some chance – above zero – that AI will kill us all. I think it’s low but there’s some chance. The consequences of getting AI wrong are severe.”

But Must added:

“It was a very civilized discussion among some of the smartest people in the world. I thought Senator Schumer did a great service to humanity here, with the support of the rest of the Senate, and I think something good will come of this. This meeting may go down in history as being very important for the future of civilization.”
