Senators unveil plan for AI regulation, as companies race ahead

Senate Majority Leader Charles E. Schumer and other key lawmakers have spent much of the past year hashing out the 31-page “road map,” which calls for a $32 billion infusion of federal spending in AI research and development. It also calls congressional committees to develop legislation that would create evaluations for AI harms, protect elections and address risks that AI poses to sectors such as health care and housing.
