California: Bill on AI risk management standards read for second time and re-referred to Committee on Governmental Organization

On April 1, 2024, Senate Bill 892 Public contracts: automated decision systems: AI risk management standards was read for a second time, amended, and re-referred to the Committee on Governmental Organization. This follows its introduction on March 1, 2024.

If enacted, the bill would require the Department of Technology to develop and adopt regulations to create an artificial intelligence (AI) risk management standard. The bill provides that the AI risk management standard should include, among other things, a detailed risk assessment procedure for procuring automated decision systems (ADS), methods for appropriate risk control, and adverse incident monitoring procedures.

The bill defines ADS as a computational process derived from machine learning, statistical modeling, data analytics, or AI that issues simplified output, including a score, classification, or recommendation, that is used to assist or replace human discretionary decision-making and materially impacts natural persons.
