On 21 June, Senator Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) formally launched the SAFE Innovation Framework, a two-part proposal for driving forward “comprehensive legislation” for AI in the United States.
Part two of the proposal is a new legislative approach for translating this framework into action by convening key stakeholders in AI development and deployment for a series of AI Insight Forums where experts debate regulatory approaches and guardrails for AI in an attempt to forge consensus.
Credo AI’s CEO and Founder, Navrina Singh, was invited to contribute to this conversation, highlighting the urgency and significance of translating AI governance into tangible actions. Read Credo AI's written statement here.
To date, six forums have taken place on topics including innovation, national security, bias and high-risk applications, risk management, alignment and guarding against doomsday scenarios, elections and democracy, workforce, and economic disruption, privacy and AI in our social world, and liability. The seventh installment focused on Transparency, Explainability, Intellectual Property, & Copyright.
Our mission and work at Credo AI aligns closely with the goals of the SAFE Innovation Framework, and we are encouraged to see Senator Schumer involve a diverse set of stakeholders and thought leaders throughout the forums to gain insights from startups like Credo AI, not just the big players.
In order to make AI transparency a reality, we encourage the U.S. Congress to:
1) prioritize AI transparency and disclosures, injecting transparency, evaluations, and disclosures throughout the entire AI value chain;
2) invest in contextual regulations, benchmarks, and evaluations with requirements based on the specific use case; and
3) operationalize standards, AI assurance sandboxes, and dedicated AI oversight. I look forward to discussing these ideas with the distinguished members of the U.S. Senate and the esteemed participants of this Forum.
We are honored to be part of this discussion and look forward to sharing additional insights on the role of Congress in advancing Responsible AI, transparency, and accountability.
Stay tuned for an in-depth exploration of these critical issues!
