Sign the Petition to stop harmful AI

AI is transforming how we live and the institutions that govern our everyday lives. To address US government use of AI, the Biden Administration has released an initial set of proposals and plans for various departments and agencies. This is a critical opportunity to call out the harms AI is already causing, and to ensure there are policies to protect civil and human rights when the federal government uses AI.

You can help shape the future of AI by signing the petition now!

On October 30, 2023, the Biden Administration released an Executive Order on Artificial Intelligence. This sweeping document covers a lot of areas, including the use of AI in finance, education, healthcare, housing, and the workplace, but also leaves out a lot of details. Ultimately it calls on federal agencies to gather information and create specific plans to guide the policies around AI.

One of the first steps in this process is the creation of a guidance by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), which will lay out ground rules for federal agencies’ use of AI and set expectations for transparency and protections against government use of AI.

The draft guidance lays out various requirements around issues like assessing impact, mitigating risks, training AI operators, providing transparency for the public when AI is in use, and giving opportunities to appeal when AI causes harm. It also suggests some minimum practices for agencies to follow when using AI that could impact peoples’ rights and safety.

While a good first step, there are pieces missing from the OMB guidance that are critical to truly protect against the harms of AI. This comment period is an opportunity to highlight these concerns and make suggestions for how it can be improved to ensure we win strong policy. It is critical that the OMB hears from you!

Comments were due December 5, but you can still sign a petition that we will use to continue to push OMB to adopt strong policies.
