The Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) released a Blueprint for an AI Bill of Rights: Making Automated Systems Work for the American People earlier this week. According to the document,
The Blueprint for an AI Bill of Rights is 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 intel-ligence. Developed through extensive consultation with the American public, these principles are a blueprint for building and deploying automated systems that are aligned with democratic values and protect civil rights, civil liberties, and privacy. The Blueprint for an AI Bill of Rights includes this Foreword, the five principles, notes on Applying the The Blueprint for an AI Bill of Rights, and a Technical Companion that gives concrete steps that can be taken by many kinds of organizations—from governments at all levels to companies of all sizes—to uphold these values. Experts from across the private sector, governments, and international consortia have published principles and frameworks to guide the responsible use of automated systems; this framework provides a national values statement and toolkit that is sector-agnostic to inform building these protections into policy, practice, or the technological design process. Where existing law or policy—such as sector-specific privacy laws and oversight requirements—do not already provide guidance, the Blueprint for an AI Bill of Rights should be used to inform policy decisions.
