The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) Blueprint for an AI Bill of Rights

  • 1.  The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) Blueprint for an AI Bill of Rights

    Hi All,

    The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) is today released the Blueprint for an AI Bill of Rights to help guide the design, development, and deployment of artificial intelligence (AI) and other automated systems so that they protect the rights of the American public.

    These technologies can drive great innovations, like enabling early cancer detection or helping farmers grow food more efficiently. But in the United States and abroad, people are increasingly being surveilled or ranked by automated systems in their workplaces and in their schools, in housing and banking, in healthcare and the legal system, and beyond. Algorithms used across many sectors are plagued by bias and discrimination, and too often developed with without regard to their real-world consequences and without the input of the people who will have to live with their results.

    These problems, which have expanded dramatically over the past decade, are threatening the rights of millions and hurting people in historically marginalized communities.

    That's why today we're laying out five common sense protections to which everyone in America should be entitled:

    Safe and Effective Systems: You should be protected from unsafe or ineffective systems.
    Algorithmic Discrimination Protections: You should not face discrimination by algorithms and systems should be used and designed in an equitable way.
    Data Privacy: You should be protected from abusive data practices via built-in protections and you should have agency over how data about you is used.
    Notice and Explanation: You should know when an automated system is being used and understand how and why it contributes to outcomes that impact you.
    Human Alternatives, Consideration, and Fallback: You should be able to opt out, where appropriate, and have access to a person who can quickly consider and remedy problems you encounter.
