Let's Talk: SB-1047

Join me and hundreds of other hard-working Californians in opposing Senate Bill 1047. This bill not only limits growth, but it locks away the reason why Silicon Valley is so great. We cannot let AI be limited, but more importantly, we cannot let the government limit our creativity.

What is SB-1047?

SB 1047, introduced by Senator Scott Wiener, aims to regulate the development and deployment of advanced artificial intelligence models in California. The bill establishes a framework for developers to ensure that AI models do not possess hazardous capabilities that could lead to critical harm, such as creating weapons of mass destruction or causing mass casualties through cyber-attacks. Key provisions include mandatory safety protocols, a new Frontier Model Division in the Department of Technology, and reporting requirements for AI safety incidents. The bill also proposes CalCompute, a public cloud computing cluster to support safe AI research and development. Click here to view the full bill.

SB 1047 may appear to prioritize safety, but it imposes excessive regulations that stifle innovation and place an undue burden on AI developers. The bill’s stringent requirements for safety protocols, annual compliance certifications, and severe penalties for non-compliance could hinder technological advancements and place California at a competitive disadvantage. These regulations could discourage small businesses and startups from developing AI technologies, limiting the state's growth in this critical sector.
