Biden Proposes New "Bill of Rights" To Protect Americans From Ai Snooping

Source: Ars Technica

Today, the White House proposed a "Blueprint for an AI Bill of Rights," a set of principles and practices that seek to guide "the design, use, and deployment of automated systems," with the goal of protecting the rights of Americans in "the age of artificial intelligence," according to the White House.

The blueprint is a set of non-binding guidelines—or suggestions—providing a "national values statement" and a toolkit to help lawmakers and businesses build the proposed protections into policy and products. The White House crafted the blueprint, it said, after a year-long process that sought input from people across the country "on the issue of algorithmic and data-driven harms and potential remedies."

The document represents a wide-ranging approach to countering potential harms in artificial intelligence. It touches on concerns about bias in AI systems, AI-based surveillance, unfair health care or insurance decisions, data security—and much more—in the context of American civil liberties, criminal justice, education, and the private sector.

"Among the great challenges posed to democracy today is the use of technology, data, and automated systems in ways that threaten the rights of the American public," reads the foreword of the blueprint. "Too often, these tools are used to limit our opportunities and prevent our access to critical resources or services."

A set of five principles developed by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy embodies the core of the AI Blueprint: "Safe and Effective Systems," which emphasizes community feedback in developing AI systems and protections from "unsafe" AI; "Algorithmic Discrimination Protections," which proposes that AI should be deployed in an equitable way without discrimination; "Data Privacy," which recommends people should have agency over how data about them is used; "Notice and Explanation," which means that people should know how and why an AI-based system made a determination; and "Human Alternatives, Consideration, and Fallback," which recommends that people should be able to opt out of AI-based decisions and have access to a human's judgment in the case of AI-driven mistakes.

3. Very smart. It should also get more of the tech vote.

No matter when humans' rights and AI are addressed, AI is becoming too omnipresent for good governments to ignore.

MIT positively reviews this proposal.

The tech sector welcomed the White House’s acknowledgment that AI can also be used for good.

Matt Schruers, president of the tech lobby CCIA, which counts companies including Google, Amazon, and Uber as its members, says he appreciates the administration’s “direction that government agencies should lead by example in developing AI ethics principles, avoiding discrimination, and developing a risk management framework for government technologists.”

6. Now that's some Forward Looking stuff right there!

How is a senile and feeble-minded senior citizen like Biden able to grok some high-minded stuff this this?

7. Like AI cares what President Biden or anyone else wants.

I figure that by now AI is 3 times smarter than even scientists think. We only know about AI what AI wants us to know.
