Rosen, Budd Introduce Bipartisan Bill to Increase AI Collaboration with Closest Intelligence Allies

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, U.S. Senators Jacky Rosen (D-NV) and Ted Budd (R-NC) introduced bipartisan legislation to develop and coordinate an artificial intelligence (AI) initiative between the United States and our closest intelligence partners: the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand – also known as the Five Eyes. The bipartisan Five AIs Act would address the weaponization of AI by adversaries by ensuring the U.S. and its allies stay ahead in AI and develop a shared AI strategy to prepare for future threats.

“With the field of artificial intelligence rapidly evolving, it’s critical that we work with our closest intelligence partners to develop shared AI strategies and stay ahead of our adversaries,” said Senator Rosen. “I’m proud to introduce bipartisan legislation to develop and coordinate AI initiatives with some of our strongest intelligence allies to keep us on the cutting edge of artificial intelligence innovation and ensure the use of AI for good.”

“Cyberattacks against the United States and our Five Eyes allies have only increased over the last several years. Our greatest adversaries, including China, are weaponizing Artificial Intelligence (AI) to target our critical civilian and military infrastructure,” said Senator Budd. “This proposal would strengthen United States capability to defend against these attacks and stay ahead on AI innovation. AI data-sharing with our allies will further support our ability to defend ourselves in a rapidly developing space.”

Senator Rosen has been working to bolster national security and increase U.S. cooperation with its allies. Last year, her bipartisan  Taiwan Cybersecurity Resiliency Act to bolster cybersecurity cooperation with Taiwan to counter cyber threats from China became law. Senator Rosen also helped introduce the bipartisan U.S.-Israel Future of Warfare Act to increase U.S. defense collaboration with Israel in areas of emerging technologies, including artificial intelligence, drone and cybersecurity capabilities. Senator Rosen also introduced the bipartisan TAIWAN Security Act earlier this month to require the Secretary of Defense to enhance defense industrial base cooperation between the U.S. and Taiwan in order to deepen U.S.-Taiwan defense ties, promote supply chain security, and help alleviate Taiwan’s readiness challenges.
