“With the rapid pace of technological advancements nationally and world-wide, this task force will allow Wisconsin to be at the forefront of innovation. Artificial Intelligence has the opportunity to change the way Wisconsin approaches economic development, workforce training, and every day jobs. I recognize AI presents both exciting prospects and understandable apprehensions, but our goal is to ensure Wisconsin seizes the opportunities presented by AI while also safeguarding Wisconsin’s strong labor force.”
“I look forward to working with Chair Nate Gustafson (R-Neenah) and Vice-Chair Steve Doyle (D-Onalaska) along with the other members on the Speaker’s Task Force on Artificial Intelligence.”
