Today: Szabo Testifying on Real Harm Caused by Deepfakes in Congress

WASHINGTON—Today, Carl Szabo, NetChoice Vice President & General Counsel, will testify to the U.S. House Oversight Committee’s Subcommittee on Cybersecurity, Information Technology, and Government Innovation on “Addressing Real Harm Caused by Deepfakes.” 

A livestream of the hearing, which begins at 2:00 PM Eastern Time, will be available on the Oversight Committee’s website. His full testimony is now available here

“The choices we make today about how to approach AI governance will shape the fabric of American competitiveness, security and liberty for generations to come. I urge the members of this Subcommittee to reject reactive, heavy-handed proposals that would stymie our capacity to lead the AI revolution, and to instead advance pragmatic, forward-thinking solutions to maximize this technology’s positive impact while mitigating its avoidable harms,” Szabo will say in his testimony. 

“We believe the key to addressing deepfakes and unlocking AI’s full potential is to pursue a balanced, multi-stakeholder approach. We should strategically update existing legal frameworks for the digital age, empower educators to integrate AI tools thoughtfully into their pedagogy, and encourage voluntary industry initiatives around transparency, accountability and security.”
