(The Center Square) - U.S. Senator Pete Ricketts, R-Nebraska, introduced a bill to regulate artificial intelligence this week.

Ricketts introduced the Advisory for AI-Generated Content Act. If enacted, it would require a digital watermark on content generated by Artificial Intelligence. 

Additionally, it would direct the Federal Trade Commission, the Federal Communications Commission, the Department of Justice, and the Department of Homeland Security to create federal guidelines for enforcing the requirement, including on political advertising.
