White House Releases “Blueprint for an AI Bill Of Rights” to Guide Development of AI Systems

The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) has released a “Blueprint for an Artificial Intelligence Bill of Rights” consisting of five principles to guide the design, use, and deployment of automated systems to protect the American public in the age of artificial intelligence (AI). The five principles are intended to: (1) protect Americans from unsafe of ineffective automated systems; (2) ensure algorithms and systems are used and designed in an equitable way; (3) protect Americans from abusive data practices; (4) provide notice to Americans when an automated system is being used and to describe its impacts; and (5) provide an opportunity to opt out of the use of AI systems. 

In particular, in its appendix of systems the White House envisions applying these principles to, the OSTP cites “employment-related systems such as workplace algorithms that inform all aspects of the terms and conditions of employment including, but not limited to, pay or promotion, hiring or termination algorithms, virtual or augmented reality workplace training programs, and electronic workplace surveillance and management systems.”

The full “Blueprint for an AI Bill of Rights” is available here, while the accompanying appendix is available on the White House website here.
