About Kamala Harris: 'Absolutely Not'

 May 22, 2023

Residents of Washington, D.C. weighed in on their thoughts about Vice President Kamala Harris, and it's not good.

The residents said they do not believe that Vice President Kamala Harris would be able to run the White House's response to artificial intelligence if she were asked to lead it.

"I don't know if Kamala Harris has the background and the tech knowledge to really get a grasp on what AI can do and what its capabilities are, to be able to wrangle it in a space that is safe for everyone and not just beneficial for large corporations," resident Eric said.

"Harris met with the top executives from OpenAI, Microsoft and Alphabet earlier this month to discuss AI-related risks and opportunities," reports Fox. "Afterward, the vice president faced criticism from Elon Musk and others who questioned her expertise in the field."

"Maybe someone who can fix their own WiFi router wouldn’t be too much to ask," Musk said in a tweet.

Several residents of the Capitol city agree with Musk's criticism.

"I'm not sure I trust Kamala Harris to run point, but I certainly hope that she gets the job done," Devonne said.

Jo said Harris should "absolutely not" be in charge of the White House's AI response "because I don't believe she's done a good job at all as vice president."

More comments from residents revealed it would take an industry expert — or a panel of them — to regulate AI.

"I don't know if putting one person who may or may not possess that particular expertise in charge is a great idea," John said.

"That takes real specialized knowledge and there's so many different ethical considerations, all sorts of various things," John added.

Other interviewees revealed that they don't know of anything Harris has accomplished, therefore, they would not trust her to run point on AI responses.
