Yo, so there’s this crazy law proposed in Utah, right? It’s all about AI, artificial intelligence, and it’s got people talking. The whole idea is to keep businesses and, like, the Department of Commerce in the loop when it comes to this kind of tech. The bill, called SB149, would create a kind of “AI Learning Lab” to keep an eye on what’s up with AI and how to, you know, regulate it.
The thing about AI is that it’s getting more and more human, but at the end of the day, it’s not actually human. So, the state wants to set up some boundaries to make sure businesses don’t use AI to deceive customers. This means that if a chatbot lies to you about a product, it’s not the chatbot’s fault – it’s the company behind it that’s on the hook.
But it’s not just about putting the squeeze on businesses – the bill also aims to promote innovation and protect businesses. Plus, it would require certain licensed industries, like healthcare and finance, to disclose right off the bat that they’re dealing with AI, not a real person.
So, that’s the deal. It’s all about keeping a handle on AI and making sure it’s not being used to screw people over. And hey, if you wanna keep hearing stories like this, think about throwing a donation to The Salt Lake Tribune. It’ll help them keep people like Shannon Sollitt cranking out more quality content.
