BSA is calling on governments to pass legislation to require private sector companies to perform impact assessments on high-risk uses of AI technologies. To aid governments in this effort, BSA today released Confronting Bias: BSA’s Framework to Build Trust in AI.
“Now is the time for industry to step forward and work with policymakers to pass legislation to address risks of AI bias, and BSA will help lead this effort. Companies and governments alike should use BSA’s AI Risk Management Framework as a playbook for building trust and transparency at every point in the AI lifecycle, from design to deployment,” said Victoria Espinel, President and CEO at BSA | The Software Alliance. “BSA’s members are committed to finding and implementing best practices to keep AI systems from producing unintentional negative consequences. Policymakers in the European Union have already begun work on legislation to regulate AI, and we will continue to work with the EU, with leaders in the US, and with policymakers around the globe to build the right approach and pass it into law.”
