USA: Chamber launches AI commission
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce ('Chamber') announced, on 18 January 2021, the launch of its Artificial Intelligence ('AI') Commission on Competition, Inclusion, and Innovation which aims to advance the position of US leadership in the use and regulation of AI technology. Furthermore, the AI Commission will request input from a variety of stakeholders and recommend AI policy solutions to the U.S. government.
Suzanne P. Clark, President, and CEO of the Chamber noted "[T]echnological innovation is foundational to a thriving 21st century economy. We must leverage AI to compete globally, and we need reasonable and responsible rules governing the use of AI that harness its potential while effectively mitigating its risks."
As part of its work, the AI Commission has released a request for information ('RFI') on what the legal definition of AI should be and encompass, as well as requesting if there should be sector-specific definitions developed regarding AI. In addition, the RFI also requests feedback on current jurisdictional approaches to the definition of AI including in Europe.
