This statement can be attributed to Paul Lekas, Senior Vice President, Global Public Policy, Software & Information Industry Association:
“SIIA commends the White House Office of Science & Technology Policy (OSTP) on releasing Blueprint for an AI Bill of Rights: Making Automated Systems Work for the American People. The Blueprint’s five principles on the design, use, and deployment of automated systems will have a crucial role in shaping our national dialogue on AI policy and establishing a vision for a democratic model of technology governance that will bolster engagement with U.S. allies and partners. We are pleased to see attention to the safety and efficacy of AI systems and guidance around algorithmic discrimination, as well as a targeted focus on potential harms to rights, opportunities, and access.
“The Blueprint is intended to foster development of standards and practices. SIIA looks forward to working closely with OSTP to refine the application of the principles in practice in a way that protects individuals while continuing to support beneficial AI systems and innovation in the information economy.”
