Oversight and Armed Services Subcommittees Held Joint Hearing on the Final Report of the National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence

Washington, D.C. – Today, Chairman Stephen F. Lynch and Ranking Member Glenn Grothman, Committee on Oversight and Reform’s Subcommittee on National Security, joined Chairman Jim Langevin and Ranking Member Elise Stefanik, Committee on Armed Services Subcommittee on Cyber, Innovative Technologies, and Information Systems, to hold a joint hearing about the final report released by the National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence (NSCAI).

The witnesses, all Chairs or Commissioners of the NSCAI, testified about how rapid technological advances in AI and its application across military and intelligence systems will create risks and opportunities for our national security.

The Chairs and Commissioners testified that the U.S. government must harness the power of artificial intelligence to strengthen our military and intelligence systems against AI-enabled threats, or risk falling behind China and other strategic adversaries.

The NSCAI representatives testified that the U.S. government must recruit and retain a technologically-proficient workforce to leverage the full potential of AI.

The witnesses agreed that AI-enabled technologies require transparency, strong oversight, and accountability to protect against misuse and the violation of civil liberties.
