WASHINGTON (WCAX) - New Hampshire Sen Maggie Hassan is worried about the risks artificial intelligence could pose to national security.

Tuesday, Hassan, D-New Hampshire, will chair a bipartisan hearing of the Emerging Threats and Spending Oversight Subcommittee to discuss how advanced technologies-- like AI, quantum computing and bioengineering-- could threaten American national security.

The panel will include national security experts to discuss how the private and public sectors can work together to prevent potential threats.

Hassan focuses on the threat of emerging technologies, including in this year’s National Defense Authorization Act.
