A congressional caucus is comprised of a group of member of the US Congress who seek to advance a common legislative purpose. The tenure of a caucus expires when the mandate of a given Congress comes to an end. US congressional causes are similar to parliamentary groups in other countries.



The AI Caucus of the 115th US Congress was launched by Democratic Congressman John K. Delaney in May 2017 and was co-chaired by Republican Congressman Pete Olson. The caucus’ goal was to inform policymakers of the technological, economic and social impacts of advances in AI in order to ensure that the technology’s benefits reach as many Americans as possible. To accomplish that goal the caucus brought together experts from academia, government and the private sector to discuss AI’s challenges and opportunities.



Members of the Caucus played a key role in introducing the FUTURE of AI Act in December 2017, a bill that would have established a federal advisory committee to examine the societal implications of AI.



The Caucus also released a statement in April 2018 calling on Facebook to clarify the ways in which it plans to use AI and how it will ensure respect for users’ privacy and unbiased algorithms.



The formation of the bipartisan Senate Artificial Intelligence Caucus was announced in March 2019.
