As automated systems rapidly develop and embed themselves into modern life, policymakers around the world are taking note and, in some cases, stepping in. Earlier this year, the Biden administration took an early step by releasing a Blue Print for an AI Bill of Rights. Comprising five main principles, as well as what should be expected of automated systems, while offering a slate of real-world examples of the potential harms and benefits of artificial intelligence, the Blueprint is a must-read for AI governance and privacy professionals working in the space.
Suresh Venkatasubramanian is a professor of Computer Science and Data Science at Brown University. He also co-authored the Blueprint while serving as Assistant Director for Science and Justice in the White House Office of Technology and Policy.
I recently caught up with Suresh to learn more about his work on the Blueprint, how it fits into the broader spectrum of existing AI guidelines and frameworks, and what professionals should know about this rights-based document.
