The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee’s information technology subcommittee conducted the first session of a three-part hearing series about artificial intelligence Wednesday.
Rep. Will Hurd (R-Texas) said in a statement published Wednesday the subcommittee will meet with several industry professionals and government stakeholders in an effort to establish criteria that can help agencies adopt AI platforms.
Subcommittee members also seek to identify potential advantages and challenges of the technology through the hearing series.
Amir Khosrowshahi, vice president and chief technology officer at Intel‘s artificial intelligence products group, and Ian Buck, vice president and general manager at Nvidia‘s Tesla data center business, will speak at the meetings.
Charles Isbell, senior associate dean at Georgia Institute of Technology College of Computing, and Oren Etzioni, CEO at the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence, will also participate in the hearings.
