Brian was on The Verge’s “Decoder” podcast to talk about what he’s doing to protect people online, from the dangers and misinformation created by AI to the rise of social media-related depression and anxiety among kids.
You can listen to the podcast here [[link removed]] and check out some highlights below:

“The syllogism goes that these [social media] companies have… a fiduciary obligation to systematically upset tens of millions of children. And I don’t think that’s OK… An algorithm doesn’t have a First Amendment right.”
- Sen. Brian Schatz
“A very scary example [of AI] is the ability to commit financial fraud and have… our voice call our mother or father and say, ‘Look, I need to transfer 500 bucks to your bank account so you can pay for your groceries. Give me your routing number.’ And that… is so scalable and so terrifying, we need to act immediately on that.”
- Sen. Brian Schatz

We can’t wait to find out how this tech evolves -- that’s why Brian is being proactive.
Brian introduced a bill that would require social media app users to be at least 13 years old and require kids between the ages of 13 and 17 to get parental consent. It would also prevent social media companies from using their algorithms to feed toxic content to users younger than 18. Brian also introduced a bipartisan measure aimed at providing more transparency around AI-generated content by requiring clear labels and disclosures on AI content and chatbots.
