Proposed Legislation Demands Disclosure for AI-Generated Content in Pennsylvania

Politicians requiring regular citizens to disclose anything is the height of irony.

Three Pennsylvania State Representatives want to pass a law that requires content creators to disclose if something they make is done with artificial intelligence (AI).

Politicians demanding regular citizens disclose something (anything, really) is just dripping with irony.

But in a bid to address the rapidly advancing influence of artificial intelligence (AI) in daily life, State Reps. Chris Pielli, Robert E. Merski, and Jennifer O’Mara, all Democrats, have proposed a bill that would require all AI-generated content to carry a clear disclosure.

The co-sponsorship memorandum, aimed at all House members, was posted on June 13, 2023.

The proposed legislation underscores the alleged need for transparency and accountability in the era of AI. The lawmakers says that as AI becomes more sophisticated, it becomes increasingly difficult to determine the authorship of content, posing a potential risk for the spread of misinformation and scams.

As per the proposed legislation, every piece of AI-generated content, be it text, image, or otherwise, should bear a disclosure informing consumers about its artificial origin. The objective is to empower Pennsylvanians to make informed decisions when consuming content.

The representatives stress the significance of public awareness in the context of the indistinguishable nature of advanced AI output, expressing concern over a future where individuals might unknowingly interact with AI systems thinking they are human.

The trio is calling for support from their fellow legislators to navigate these “unknown waters” and safeguard Pennsylvanians against potential deception stemming from AI-produced content. As of now, it remains to be seen how the proposed bill will be received in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.
