A new job for an IT manager

The White House has declared it's time to get a grip on the AI beast and is rolling out the red carpet for a new breed of boffins: Chief AI Officers.

President Joe Biden wants every nook and cranny of the federal machine to have its very own AI whisperer, tasked with taming the tech and keeping it from going rogue.

Biden is seeking the best of the best in the tech world to become Chief AI Officers. These digital leaders will be the guardians of American values, ensuring that AI aligns with principles such as safety, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

These AI czars will wield some serious clout. They've got until 1 December to whip any unruly AI into shape, or they'll be granted a golden ticket to extend the deadline by a year.

These AI honchos will be the judge, jury, and executioner of AI's impact on the safety and rights of the good folks of the USA. They'll run the show, conduct tests, evaluate risks, and train the troops. And if they deem any AI use a threat to life, liberty, or the pursuit of happiness, they'll have to shout it from the rooftops.

These chiefs will play kingmaker, deciding when the public can give AI the cold shoulder. And if they reckon a human touch would only muck things up, they've got the power to say, "No opt-out for you!"
