BSA Statement on White House Office of Science and Technology Policy’s Blueprint for an AI Bill of Rights
WASHINGTON – October 4, 2022 – BSA | The Software Alliance offered the following statement on the Office of Science and Technology Policy’s release of the AI Bill of Rights.
“BSA applauds the Administration’s work aimed at harnessing the power of AI while ensuring safeguards that respect privacy and civil rights are in place through the development of the AI Bill of Rights. BSA and our member companies support the responsible and trusted public use of AI systems that have the tremendous potential to spur innovation and solve complex societal challenges.
“We recognize that industry plays a key role in ensuring the implementation of responsible AI practices, and we continue to advocate for the adoption of AI impact assessments. We developed Confronting Bias: BSA’s Framework to Build Trust in AI to illustrate a comprehensive impact assessment process for identifying and mitigating AI bias risks. The application of these high-risk impact assessments is a critical accountability mechanism that promotes trust by demonstrating that a system has been designed in a manner that accounts for the potential risks it may pose to the public.
“We look forward to working with the Administration as it continues to move forward with this important initiative. By providing baseline expectations for responsible development and deployment practices, the AI Bill of Rights can foster greater public trust in AI technologies,” said Shaundra Watson, Director of Artificial Intelligence Policy at BSA | The Software Alliance.
