U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), chairman of the Subcommittee on Space, Science, and Competitiveness will convene a hearing today, 30 November, at 2:30 p.m. EST on “The Dawn of Artificial Intelligence.” The hearing will conduct a broad overview of the state of artificial intelligence, including policy implications and effects on commerce.

On October 12, 2016, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy released a report entitled, Preparing for the Future of Artificial Intelligence. The report outlined opportunities for artificial intelligence, including recommendations on how the technology can be used to advance social good and improve government operations. The report also proposed 23 policy recommendations and a companion strategic plan that identified priorities for federally-funded research and development in artificial intelligence.

At today’s Senate hearing, which will be livestreamed, five experts will be present:

  • Dr. Eric Horvitz, Interim Co-Chair, Partnership on Artificial Intelligence; Managing Director, Microsoft Research Lab
  • Dr. Andrew Moore, Dean, School of Computer Science, Carnegie Mellon University
  • Dr. Andrew Futreal, Professor, Department of Genomic Medicine, University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center
  • Mr. Greg Brockman, Cofounder and Chief Technology Officer, OpenAI
  • Dr. Steve Chien, Senior Research Scientist, Autonomous Space Systems and Technical Group Supervisor, Artificial Intelligence Group, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology
