Anton Korinek's statement to the U.S. Senate AI Insight Forum on Workforce

1 November 2023

Summary

Majority Leader Schumer, Senators Rounds, Heinrich, and Young, and Distinguished Members of the Senate, thank you for organizing this important event today and for inviting me to it. I particularly appreciate the opportunity to speak about the workforce implications of advanced AI on a day when much of the attention of the world's AI community is focused on the AI Safety Summit in the UK. Ensuring the safety of AI systems is important, but not enough. We also need to prepare for the workforce implications of advanced AI, which I believe will be one of the greatest challenges for our political system in the coming years (Bell and Korinek, 2023).
