With the arrival of ChatGPT and other tools in education, the national nonprofit InnovateEDU has designated tomorrow, April 19, National AI Literacy Day, inviting students, educators, parents and community members to explore how AI is shaping the world.

Curricula and lesson plans geared to explain “What is AI?” will be offered for grades K-12, and affiliate events are planned in 17 cities across the nation.

The regulation and use of artificial intelligence in government and public services remains a high priority for lawmakers this year, with bills on AI introduced in at least 40 states, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and Washington, D.C.
