Industry groups contend OMB is prioritizing innovation and the groups suggested voluntary standards for artificial intelligence regulation. BSA | The Software Alliance agreed with the guidance that “the goal of AI governance should be to promote innovation and enhance public trust.” Nonregulatory policy approaches, like sector-specific frameworks and voluntary consensus standards, “can play a critically important role” in promoting AI applications, BSA said.

Its members are among the world’s most innovative companies, creating software solutions that help businesses of all sizes in every part of the economy to modernize and grow.
