This is the June 26, 2018 joint hearing titled "Artificial Intelligence: With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility," held before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Research and Technology & Subcommittee on Energy Committee on Science, Space, and Technology. From the opening statement of Barbara Comstock: "Of course, one might say AI [artificial intelligence] is already pervasive. Since the term was first coined in the 1950s, we have made huge advances in the field of artificial narrow intelligence, which has been applied to many familiar everyday items such as the technology underlying Siri and Alexa. Called ANI [artificial narrow intelligence] for short, such systems are designed to conduct specific and usually limited tasks. For example, a machine that excels at playing poker wouldn't be able to parallel park a car. Conversely, AGI, or artificial general intelligence, refers to intelligent behavior across a range of cognitive tasks. If you enjoy science fiction movies, this definition may conjure up scenes from any number of classics such as Blade Runner, The Matrix, or The Terminator. For many individuals, the term AGI invokes images of robots or machines with human intelligence. As it turns out, we are decades away from realizing such AGI systems. Nevertheless, discussions about AGI and a future in which AGI is commonplace lead to some interesting questions worthy of analysis." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Tim Persons, Greg Brockman, and Fei-Fei Li.
