Schatz, Gardner Introduce Legislation To Improve Federal Government’s Use Of Artificial Intelligence
“Artificial intelligence has the potential to benefit society in ways we cannot imagine today,” said Senator Harris. “We already see its immense value in applications as diverse as diagnosing cancer to routing vehicles. The AI in Government Act gives the federal government the tools and resources it needs to build its expertise and in partnership with industry and academia. The bill will help develop the policies to ensure that society reaps the benefits of these emerging technologies, while protecting people from potential risks, such as biases in AI.”
The legislation has been endorsed by BSA, Center for Democracy and Technology, Information Technology and Innovation Foundation, Intel, Internet Association, Lincoln Network, Microsoft, Niskanen Center, and R Street Institute.
