March 5, 2024

Memo Highlights

Musk vs Altman

The Center for AI Policy (CAIP) is not focused on who wins the lawsuit but is concerned about the rapid advancements in AI and urges Congress to take action.

CAIP believes the focus should be on the dangers of increasingly powerful AI, echoing concerns raised by publications like the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times.

Regardless of Musk's motivation, the lawsuit highlights the urgent need for regulatory action on AI.


The Center for AI Policy (CAIP) anticipates President Biden will address the need for AI regulation in his State of the Union address (SOTU).

CAIP believes Biden will reiterate the points from his Executive Order, emphasizing the need for urgent action on AI development.

Biden's EO stressed the need to establish a federal framework for safe AI to protect national security, economic interests, and society.

CAIP will be closely observing the SOTU address to see if Biden actively pushes Congress to take up this critical issue of AI regulation.
