A Discussion On The Future Of AI In W.Va.


On this episode of The Legislature Today, it was Crossover Day, meaning all bills must be passed out of their chamber of origin if they are to be considered this session.

Briana Heaney and Randy Yohe have stories from the Senate and House as both chambers worked to get through a flurry of legislation.

Also, a new information portal would be available to foster parents and kinship caregivers if a House bill becomes law. Emily Rice has this story.

Finally, it took 66 years to go from the Wright Brothers to the moon. Experts say it won’t take that long for artificial intelligence to turn everything on its head. AI is top of mind for the state’s legislative leadership as well. Randy Yohe talked with Joshua Spence, chief information officer for Alpha Technologies, and Del. Evan Hansen, D-Monongalia, on what AI means for now and the future.
