Democrats on Capitol Hill are creating a new working group on AI with the goal of preventing deep fakes from destabilizing elections in 2024, national security, and people's personal life.

According to reports, Rep. Derek Kilmer, D-Wash., will chair the new AI working group in the New Democrat Coalition, a 97-member bloc of House members that typically avoid the spotlight but wield significant influence over policy within the caucus.

Lawmakers' top goals will be utilizing AI's potential and guaranteeing that workers who lose their jobs due to AI can get retrained and stay in the workforce.

But because of the way in which deepfakes can be used to disseminate false information, they are likely to become a particularly important concern. This could take a variety of forms, such as foreign governments disseminating false information about politics or artificial intelligence (AI) producing fake news to harm someone's reputation.

Kilmer previously advocated for the delivery of an annual report on digital changes in forgery on behalf of a bipartisan group of members in the House and Senate.

Another member of the New Democrats working group, Rep. Joe Morelle (D-NY), has proposed legislation that would make it illegal to distribute photos created by AI that depict real individuals in fictitious, intimate settings.
