The rapid development of artificial intelligence makes us increasingly ask ourselves questions about the use of this technology. The White House, following the example of the European Artificial Intelligence Act, decided to introduce the first legal regulation in this area in the United States. According to President Joe Biden, uncontrolled technological development could directly impact the security of Americans.
According to the White House, as technological capabilities increase, new implications arise for the safety and security of Americans. According to the provisions of the regulation, companies developing artificial intelligence will have to inform the government about their work and provide it with the results of security tests. To this end, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is to create standards by which artificial intelligence will be used commercially. In turn, the Department of Energy and the Department of Homeland Security are supposed to control cyber threats to the country’s critical infrastructure.
Among other things, the amount of federal subsidies for companies from the sector involved in the development of artificial intelligence will depend on meeting the new government requirements. In this way, the government wants to encourage compliance with safety standards.
The administration wants to set an example for companies on how to avoid spreading false information generated by artificial intelligence. For this purpose, documentation created for official purposes using artificial intelligence is to be marked with a special equivalent of a watermark. This is intended to give President Joe Biden’s administration confidence that artificial intelligence is being used ethically and safely for all U.S. citizens.
