BSA Working To Pass ADPPA With AI Consequential Decision Language

Fox News, April 27, 2023

By Peter Kasperowicz

BSA | The Software Alliance’s Vice President of US Government Relations Craig Albright illustrates the importance of defining “high-risk” systems and “consequential decisions” when developing AI language for the ADPPA.

"What we’re working with the committee to do is provisions that would establish what high-risk means, and it’s hooked to the phrase ‘consequential decisions,’" Albright said. "So, we’re talking about AI systems that are used in decisions about credit, housing, employment, health care, insurance, those kinds of decisions."

"Those are consequential decisions, and if AI is going to be used in those decisions, then companies should be required to put forward design evaluations and impact assessments," he said.
