On Tuesday, 11 April, the US commerce department's National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) opened a public consultation on how to create accountability measures for AI. The NTIA is seeking feedback from researchers, industry groups, along with privacy and digital rights organisations over the development of AI audit and assessment tools. In its announcement, the NTIA said: "Much as financial audits create trust in the accuracy of a business’ financial statements, so for AI, such mechanisms can help provide assurance that an AI system is trustworthy. Just as financial accountability required policy and governance to develop, so too will AI system accountability." The consultation closes on 10 June 2023.
In related news, The Washington Post documents conversations about regulating AI in the US Congress. "We made a mistake by trusting the technology industry to self-police social media," Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., said. "I just can't believe that we are on the precipice of making the same mistake."
