The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) appreciates Singapore’s efforts in AI regulation, which align with the risk-based approach of the U.S. SIIA members actively use AI across various sectors, investing significantly in its development. However, SIIA emphasizes that AI must comply with existing legal frameworks and intellectual property rights, recognizing risks like privacy and ethical concerns. While supporting many of Singapore’s AI policies, SIIA expresses concern over a proposed exemption to access control measures, fearing it could undermine licensing markets for computational data analysis and intellectual property rights, urging a careful, evidence-based approach to policy changes.
