Elements of artificial intelligence, especially those in tools for face recognition and other biometrics, do not always work perfectly. They retain white people, sometimes men. Although this is usually based on imperfect datasets on which artificial intelligence has been trained, the issue has gone so far that similar technologies are beginning to be banned locally. The US administration has now stated that the whole issue will have to be resolved not only legally, but directly constitutionally.
Constitutionally, in the sense that a new charter of fundamental rights and freedoms should be created for the entire technology sector, which would determine people’s rights to technology, especially artificial intelligence. Basically, it would state how much algorithms can interfere with our lives and what AI behavior is beyond the edge. This charter would have the same legal weight as the classic charter of rights.
The idea was expressed by the advice of the body of President Joe Biden, which deals with setting regulatory frameworks for technology and science. Two of its members, Eric Lander and Alondra Nelson, also wrote about it for the magazine Wired. “We should demand that high-tech technologies respect our democratic values and respect the basic principle that all people must be treated equally,” they said in a comment, saying that nowhere has artificial law been defined as to what artificial intelligence can and cannot afford. .
Once such a framework is in place, it will be easier for technology developers to adapt their work to these standards, Biden’s advisers believe, and it will be easier for people to defend themselves if artificial intelligence damages them.
But the advisory body also says that the bill of rights is just the beginning. In time, regulations will probably have to be issued so that the government does not buy technologies with a question mark over it and does not cooperate with manufacturers who do not adhere to the new rules.
The European Union has reached a similar view, albeit in a slightly different way. It has already set certain limits for the risky use of AI, this week the European Parliament spoke against police use of facial recognition systems. According to the resolution adopted by him, a moratorium should be postponed postponing this use until it is ensured that everything is in order. At the same time, in public spaces, these systems should not analyze other human expressions such as voice or walking. Artificial intelligence should also not be used to predict crimes.
