In the wake of countless advancements in artificial intelligence (AI) technology, rumblings of concern have started to surface. These automated systems have brought benefits for individuals and businesses alike, but they come with the cost of many unknowns.

With regulatory legislation on the horizon, the White House has created a blueprint for an AI Bill of Rights. The blueprint outlines a set of standards that each person or business would be entitled to when it comes to using AI.

Blueprint for AI Bill of Rights Breakdown

Pillar 1: Safe and Effective Systems

Automated systems should be developed safely and effectively, with consultation from diverse communities, stakeholders, and domain experts. They should be tested, monitored, and evaluated to ensure that they do not endanger users or communities. Independent reports of the system’s safety and effectiveness should be made public.

Pillar 2: Algorithm Discrimination Protections

No one should face discrimination by any algorithm. Any system should be used and designed equitably. Algorithm creators should take proactive measures to protect individuals and communities from algorithmic discrimination. This includes using representative data, ensuring accessibility for people with disabilities, and conducting disparity testing.

Pillar 3: Data Privacy

Individuals should have control over their data and be protected from abusive data practices. Designers, developers, and deployers of automated systems should seek permission and respect any decisions regarding the collection, use, access, transfer, and deletion of personal data.

Pillar 4: Notice and Explanation

Automated systems should be transparent. Designers, developers, and deployers should provide clear and accessible documentation about the system, including how it works and how it impacts users. Users should be able to understand how and why an outcome was determined by the system, and they should be able to contact the system’s owners if they have questions or concerns.

Pillar 5: Human Alternatives and Consideration

Anyone should be able to opt out of automated systems and have access to a human who can review and remedy any problems. This access should be timely, accessible, and equitable. Automated systems used in sensitive domains should be tailored to the purpose, provide meaningful oversight, and incorporate human review for adverse or high-risk decisions.

What’s Next?

This purposed framework is meant to serve as a guide and applies to automated systems that have the potential to impact the American public’s rights, opportunities, or access to critical resources or services.
