The United States of America White House: The Office of Science & Technology Policy recently released its Blueprint for an AI Bill of Rights, and provided recommendations that developers, businesses, users, and lawmakers can follow to reduce AI’s potential harms to humans, and to our society at large.
AI is being used in so many positive ways, however, until we advance our legal systems, audit systems, procurement systems and our educational systems – we will continue to put at risk our evolution in our more intelligent world.
The Blueprint for an AI Bill of Rights recognizes that law enforcement activities require a balancing of equities, for example, between the protection of sensitive law enforcement information and the principle of notice; as such, notice may not be appropriate, or may need to be adjusted to protect sources, methods, and other law enforcement equities.
Five AI principles are identified to guide the design, use, and deployment of automated systems to protect the American public in the age of artificial intelligence. The Blueprint for an AI Bill of Rights is a guide for a society that protects all people from these threats—and uses technologies in ways that reinforce our highest values. The Blueprint for an AI Bill of Rights includes a Foreword, the five principles, notes on Applying the Blueprint for an AI Bill of Rights, and From Principles to Practice that gives concrete steps that can be taken by many kinds of organizations—from governments at all levels to companies of all sizes—to uphold these values.
