Senate Special Committee on Aging Holds Hearing on AI Scams

The U.S. Senate Special Committee on Aging held a hearing that examined how Artificial Intelligence (AI) can be utilized by scammers.

During the hearing, Committee Chairman Bob Casey (D-PA) unveiled the Aging Committee’s annual Fraud Book and released a brochure on AI-powered scams and a bookmark featuring tips to avoid scams.

  • What’s next: Chairman Casey also plans to pursue efforts to ensure that the use of AI in scams is appropriately tracked by the Federal Trade Commission.

What they’re saying: “Federal action is needed to put up guardrails to protect consumers from AI—while also empowering those that can use it for good,” says Chairman Casey.
