Admin has duty to stop AI ‘algorithmic discrimination
Vice President Kamala Harris said Monday that it’s the Biden administration’s “duty” to prevent “algorithmic discrimination” when it comes to the field artificial intelligence (AI), and to ensure its benefits are “shared equitably” among society.
During her remarks alongside President Biden just before he signed an executive order establishing AI standards for private companies, she continued the administration’s efforts to make AI “woke.”
I believe we have a moral, ethical and societal duty to ensure that AI is adopted and advanced in a way that protects the public from potential harm and ensures everyone has access to its benefits. In the East Room of the White House, Harris addressed a crowd gathered to hear how President Biden and I have upheld that duty since our arrival.
The president and I convened leaders across the country before generative AI gained global attention, from computer scientists to civil rights leaders to legal scholars and business leaders, to ensure the benefits of artificial intelligence were shared equitably and that predictable threats, such as algorithmic discrimination, data privacy violations, and deep fakes, would be addressed.
According to Harris, the “Blueprint for an AI Bill of Rights” establishes “a minimum baseline of responsible AI practices” for private companies operating in this field, including proactive equity assessments as part of the system design.
According to the American Accountability Foundation (AAF), a conservative watchdog group, the Biden administration is actively using AI to promote woke, progressive ideologies led by left-wing activists.
Rather than scientists advising him on technology policy, Biden receives advice from social academics and activists obsessed with racial issues.
