House passes bill to regulate Artificial Intelligence in  education

The General Assembly this week passed legislation requiring schools to develop  guidelines for the use of artificial intelligence (AI). 

House Bill 1630, sponsored by State Rep. Scott Cepicky, R-Culleoka, would require the governing boards of public colleges and universities,  public charter schools, and local boards of education to regulate the role and use of AI in each institution. 

“What this bill does is tasks our… schools to come up with an artificial intelligence  plan on how they’re going to allow our professors, our teachers and our students to  use and not use artificial intelligence,” Cepicky said.
