Read AI recommendations for government entities as written by a consortium of industry, academia, and government. Topics include data safety, cybersecurity, privacy and ethics.

Government leadership on digital technologies is more critical now than at perhaps any other time in our history. As AI enters more facets of society, government bodies must balance the need to create standards that ensure safety, ethics, privacy, and cybersecurity with this technology’s disruptive potential to drive innovation. As we enter this uncharted territory, its critical that governments at all levels create regulatory frameworks, promote equity for AI, invest in AI research and development (R&D) and prioritize workforce training to ensure the current and future labor pool is equipped with the skills needed to work alongside this transformative technology.

Create Regulatory Frameworks

The United States federal government has created an AI Bill of Rights, “a set of five principles and associated practices to help guide the design, use, and deployment of automated systems to protect the rights of the American public in the age of artificial intelligence.”

With the AI Bill of Rights as a benchmark, government regulations must consider working in various measures to ensure potential legislation or policy implementations achieve their desired result. For example, governments should push industries to adhere to more encompassing approaches to data collection, which can aid in better service to the public and curb potential legal issues. Industries should be collecting relevant data and systems also need extensive testing to identify potential risks or shortcomings in the programming, with the results undergoing comprehensive evaluation. Moreover, collecting data representing people among all demographics and avoiding proxy variables such as income, geography, education, and age can curb algorithmic discrimination. The government can also step in with added regulation to help businesses safeguard the public's data privacy.
