Artificial Intelligence (AI) is poised to transform the way Americans work, socialize, and other numerous facets of our lives. It is already having a major impact on certain industries ranging from healthcare to transportation and will ultimately affect businesses and workers in every sector of the economy.
To provide independent, bipartisan recommendations to aid policymakers, the Commission on Artificial Intelligence Competitiveness, Inclusion, and Innovation (“AI Commission”) published a report highlighting the promise of AI while calling for a risk-based, regulatory framework. The AI Commission convened field hearings in key locations around the U.S. and internationally to inform the report’s findings on these critical issues.
AI Commission Findings:
In the report, the AI Commission outlined several major findings from its year-long deep dive on AI:
- The development of AI and introduction of AI-based systems are growing exponentially. Over the next 10-20 years, virtually every business and government agency will be using AI. This will have a profound impact upon society, the economy and national security.
- The U.S., through its technological advantages, well-developed system of individual rights, advanced legal system, and interlocking alliances with democracies worldwide, is uniquely situated to lead this effort. The U.S. must act to ensure future economic growth, provide for a competitive workforce, maintain a competitive position in a global economy and address future national security needs.
- Future advances in customer services and productivity gains—as well as the emergence of new security threats—will be powered by AI, and, therefore, failure to smartly regulate AI will harm the economy, potentially diminish individual rights, and constrain the development and introduction of beneficial technologies.
- Policies and initiatives to both enforce existing and craft new laws and rules for the development of responsible AI and its ethical deployment must be a top priority for this and future administrations and congresses.

Polling Results on Artificial Intelligence
Recently, working closely with Teneo Research, C_TEC conducted a nationally proportional survey of 1,000 American adults to explore Americans’ understanding of AI and its potential benefits and impacts on society; the appetite for further regulation of AI across a wide range of use cases; the impact AI use has on company reputation; and the desire of Americans for the US to lead on the development of AI technology and ethics.
