FCC Chair Proposes Inquiry for Use of AI Against Robocalls

Requires full vote of commission to launch period of public comment.

Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel announced a proposed inquiry into the use of artificial intelligence (AI) to curb robocalls and robotexts. The inquiry must first be approved through a vote of the full commission at the next meeting on November 15 before proceeding to solicit comments from the public. If it is approved, the FCC will seek public comment on what steps the commission can and should take if they were to use AI to block unwanted robocalls and robotexts.

“While we are aware of the challenges AI can present, there is also significant potential to use this technology to benefit communications networks and their customers—including in the fight against junk robocalls and robotexts,” said Chair Rosenworcel. “We need to address these opportunities and risks thoughtfully, and the effort we are launching today will help us gain more insight on both fronts.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For wisdom for the members of the FCC as they deliberate and vote on the proposal to use AI to stop robocalls and texts.
  • For God’s purposes to be accomplished through the work of the commissioners.
