At the committee’s inaugural hearing, held last month, it became clear that areas such as economic development, health care, education, public safety and transportation will be significantly impacted by AI. Senator John Albers, R-Roswell, chairman of the Senate Study Committee on Artificial Development, highlighted the profound changes AI is expected to bring.

Artificial Intelligence reach extends to public safety and transportation

One of the immediate impacts of AI is witnessed in public safety, where AI technology can now handle 911 calls and dispatch responders, ensuring that no emergency call goes unanswered. Albers stated that nobody will ever be on hold and not have an answer immediately highlighting the efficiency brought by AI to emergency response systems.

In the transportation sphere, AI is already making its mark through the development of autonomous vehicles and drone deliveries. Additionally, AI also aids cities in controlling traffic which can result in smarter choices regarding public works projects like widening highways or building bridges. 

AI set to transform education and healthcare

AI is also anticipated to have a great impact on education. Albers notes that for the past 85 years, traditional teaching methods have not changed even when the world has greatly transformed. He suggested that AI promises to change educational methods completely from conventional approaches to more creative, personalized learning experiences.

In the healthcare field, AI integration could be a game-changer for research and other advances. These abilities may be used to cure cancer or other terminal diseases according to Albers. The potential for AI to analyze large amounts of data quickly and accurately could lead to innovative discoveries and more effective treatments.

The summer and fall will see at least several more hearings by the Senate Study Committee on artificial intelligence. One such meeting will occur in Augusta at the Georgia Cyber Innovation & Training Center. These meetings are designed to gather input about how artificial intelligence is affecting people’s lives statewide to inform their recommendations for possible new laws or regulations in this area.

The committee is expected to release its recommendations by December 1. If no legislation is proposed, the panel will submit a report to the full Senate. These ongoing efforts reflect the legislature’s commitment to addressing the complexities and opportunities presented by AI technology, ensuring that Georgia remains at the forefront of this rapidly evolving field.
