The White House has opened up a process to start building a Bill of Rights for AI - which could guide the federal government to regulate how its own agencies use these tools, our rights to challenge what they say about us, and even keep the government from buying or using technologies that don’t respect our rights and civil liberties. But if the White House doesn’t hear from us, the rich and well organized voices of big companies that build these tools will drown us out, and big companies and our government will prioritize the large profits money they make from artificial intelligence, rather than the rights of the people surveilled and judged by it.
We have a rare chance with the Biden administration to limit the ways in which technology hurts our communities.
