The Committee on House Administration's Subcommittee on Modernization has released its December flash report on artificial intelligence. 

This report is the fourth and final in a series of flash reports the Subcommittee is releasing on artificial intelligence (AI) strategy and implementation in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The purpose of this report is to provide an update on the use of AI technology by House offices and Legislative Branch agencies, as summarized by their response letters sent to the Committee on House Administration. 

Recent Accomplishments:
  • The House is currently using AI-assisted tools for operations, front office, constituent services, communications, and legislation use cases.
  • CAO is actively discussing the 'research and evaluation' restriction on the use of ChatGPT Plus and related services. Staff may be allowed to use this tool (or others like it) in normal, operational workflows with critical caveats as soon as 2024.
  • CAO will continue to actively refine a more formal House-tailored AI Principles and AI Policy. 
  • CAO is exploring first-party, secure LLM options, including Microsoft Azure OpenAI service and ChatGPT's new "Custom GPTs" functionality, as a technical baseline for future (yet-to-be-approved) pilot LLM projects that are larger in scale. 
  • CHA will continue to focus on AI in government operations through the duration of 2024.

The Committee on House Administration's Subcommittee on Modernization focuses on matters relating to the modernization of the U.S. House of Representatives and the Legislative Branch, oversight of the implementation of modernization initiatives, and other issues as they relate to bringing Congress into the 21st century.
