Chicago (WISH) – An influential U.S. senator from Indiana revealed to News 8 that discussions on AI policy are anticipated to begin in Congressional committees within the first three weeks of the year. The specific number of bills under review remains uncertain.

Senator Todd Young, a Republican hailing from Indiana, has actively engaged in convening various forums focusing on artificial intelligence with key stakeholders and industry leaders since late September. In a discussion about All Indian Politics, Young underscored the significant opportunities and challenges presented by advancements in AI. Examples cited include the utilization of AI in tumor treatment and educational environments for children. Conversely, he raised concerns about potential risks posed by malicious actors such as Hamas exploiting AI for the development of bioweapons.

Young emphasized that while existing laws and judicial precedents may address some privacy and consumer protection issues related to AI, there is a pressing need to update these regulations to effectively govern AI technologies. Despite extensive discussions among policymakers, no concrete legislative measures have been proposed thus far.

Stressing the importance of a cautious and deliberate approach, Young remarked, “We should not hastily address all facets simultaneously as achieving comprehensive accuracy from the outset is complex.”

Discussing the recent developments in the Israel-Hamas conflict, Young highlighted the ongoing initiatives to secure the release of seven Ukrainian men and an American girl held captive in Gaza. As a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Young emphasized diplomatic efforts, including engagements with the Qatari government, to facilitate the safe return of the hostages. When questioned about potential military actions, Young emphasized the prioritization of humanitarian considerations over political expediency.

Amid escalating tensions in Gaza, the Biden Administration has consistently urged Israel to minimize civilian casualties. Young expressed confidence in Israel’s efforts to reduce casualties, attributing the challenges to Hamas’ strategic positioning of military assets near civilian infrastructure.

Addressing the U.S. Coast Guard’s recent acknowledgment of shortcomings in preventing sexual assault within its ranks, including among cadets at the Coast Guard Academy, Young, a member of the Senate Commerce Committee overseeing the Coast Guard, affirmed the committee’s dedication to reviewing the outcomes of the internal investigation. He underscored the importance of accountability and adherence to proper protocols within the organization.

In response to inquiries about his preferred candidate for the national primary endorsement, Young clarified his decision not to endorse former President Donald Trump. While remaining undecided on his endorsement, he expressed a positive opinion of Nikki Haley as a potential candidate.
