BSA Voices Support for Artificial Intelligence Initiative Act

WASHINGTON – March 12, 2020 – BSA | The Software Alliance offered the following statement on today’s introduction of the Artificial Intelligence Initiative Act (AIIA).

“BSA applauds Chairwoman Johnson and Ranking Member Lucas for introducing the Artificial Intelligence Initiative Act (AIIA). Their bill recognizes that US leadership in the development of AI requires a steady commitment to long-term R&D that leverages the strengths, expertise, and resources of government, academia, and industry,” said Christian Troncoso, Senior Director, Policy at BSA | The Software Alliance. “Importantly, the AIIA will also establish a NIST-led process to develop an AI risk management framework. Such a framework will enhance public trust that the AI systems they interact with have been responsibly designed and deployed. We strongly support this effort.”


BSA | The Software Alliance (www.bsa.org) is the leading advocate for the global software industry before governments and in the international marketplace. Its members are among the world’s most innovative companies, creating software solutions that spark the economy and improve modern life.
