ChatGPT boss calls for a new government agency to keep AI companies in check

OpenAI CEO Sam Altman, IBM chief privacy and trust officer Christina Montgomery, and New York University professor emeritus Dr Gary Marcus were questioned today by a US Senate subcommittee about the potential risks of artificial intelligence and how it should be regulated.
