White House Unveils Its ‘Blueprint’ For An AI Bill Of Rights
Last Updated on: 7th October 2022, 12:12 pm
Tuesday’s release of the Biden administration’s Artificial Intelligence Strategy Blueprint marks a major step forward in the government’s understanding and use of this transformative technology.
The document, which has been in the works for over a year, is a comprehensive guide for how artificial intelligence will be used in the future, from governance and safety concerns to economic development and innovation.
“Artificial intelligence is one of the most significant opportunities we have to improve the way we live and work,” said Vice President Biden. “This Strategy Blueprint is a roadmap for the future, and I am committed to working with our partners in the private sector and academia to make sure that this technology is used for the benefit of all Americans.”
The Strategy Blueprint calls for a coordinated, federal effort to develop artificial intelligence policies and guidelines, and to ensure that the technology is used responsibly. The blueprint also sets forth a number of areas where artificial intelligence could have a major impact, including healthcare, transportation, and the economy.
To better serve the American people, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) is releasing a report today on the state of government communication.
The report is the result of a yearlong consultation process through which OSTP has collected evidence from communities and industry stakeholders across the country, as well as experts from other sectors and the federal government.
Five Core Principles For The Oversight Of The Technology
The AI Bill of Rights consists of five core principles for the oversight of the technology: effective and safe algorithms, protections against algorithmic discrimination including data privacy, notification and explanation, human alternatives, consideration, and fallback.
- Safe and effective systems- ensure that the technology is used in a way that does not hurt or endanger people
- Algorithmic discrimination protections- ensure that people are not discriminated against based on their data
- Data privacy- ensure that people’s personal data is not accessed or used without their consent
- Notice and explanation- provide people with information about the technology and how it is being used
- Human alternatives- ensure that people have the ability to opt out or have their data replaced if they do not want it used.
In terms of AI in the field, AI is a topic that the White House is hoping to make sure that the technology can have an impact that is positive on society. In May the Department of Commerce launched the National AI Intelligence Advisory Committee to focus on giving government insights from the industry regarding AI-related issues.
The committee is comprised of leaders from industry with diverse backgrounds such as engineers, academics, and business leaders. The ultimate goal of the committee is to give the government insights into how to better manage AI technology to benefit society overall. The first goal of the committee is to create the blueprint for the creation of an AI Bill of Rights. The document will define the rights AI ought to have and will ensure the rights of AI are safeguarded through the federal government.
This is a significant move, since AI is an industry that is growing that could have a significant impact on society. The committee’s work will ensure that this technology is utilized in a manner that is responsible and that the advantages of AI can be felt by all in society.
Blueprint Made Legal In The National AI Initiative Act Of 2020
The White House has published a plan to create the creation of an AI Bill of Rights, which is designed to ensure the technology is utilized wisely and to serve the best interests of all individuals.
The blueprint made legal in the National AI Initiative Act of 2020 aims at balancing the advantages of automated technology alongside the rights of the people who are impacted by their use. The most important fundamentals that are outlined in the AI Bill of Rights are the right to privacy as well as the right to freedom of expression, as well as the right to be autonomous. The task force that is charged with the implementation of the plan will comprise of members from academia, industry, as well as civil society.
The launch was announced by the Deputy Director of Science and Society at the White House Alondra Nelson said: “Automated technologies are driving incredible innovations and shaping key choices that affect the rights of people as well as opportunities and access. “The Blueprint of the creation of an AI Bill of Rights is for anyone who is constantly in contact with this powerful technology -as well as anyone who has had their life affected by unreliable algorithms.
The White House has published a blueprint for an AI bill of rights, which seeks to protect citizens from unfair and harmful uses of AI. The AI bill of rights is the latest effort by federal agencies to regulate the use of AI.
These principles include ensuring that AI is transparent and accountable, protecting the privacy of people and data, ensuring that AI is used for the benefit of all, ensuring that AI is accessible and inclusive, and ensuring that AI is developed in a responsible way
