Industry Seeks AI Guidance
Politico, June 2, 2020
By Alexandra Levine
Tech trade groups want Congress to direct the National Institute of Standards and Technology to create guidelines that help companies navigate the technical and ethical hurdles of developing artificial intelligence. In a letter to Reps. José Serrano (D-N.Y.) and Robert Aderholt (R-Ala.), whose House Appropriations subcommittee oversees NIST, the associations contend the government’s tech minds are well-positioned to suggest voluntary guidelines for AI — as they’ve done in the past for cybersecurity and privacy.
It’s a push that comes as Europe charges ahead with regulations, and U.S. firms worry their own leaders will be playing catch up. BSA | The Software Alliance, whose members include Intel, Microsoft, Oracle and Workday, led the letter. The Chamber Technology Engagement Center, Consumer Technology Association, Computing Technology Industry Association and Information Technology Industry Council also signed on.
