A look at proposed US state private sector AI legislation

More than a quarter of U.S. state legislatures are considering bills regulating the private sector’s use of artificial intelligence. Common categories and themes are emerging when analysing the current landscape of proposed state private sector AI bills, which include algorithmic discrimination, automated employment decision-making, AI Bill of Rights and “working group” bills.

The bills burden AI developers and businesses using AI to proactively ensure that the technologies are not creating discriminatory outcomes in the consumer and employment context. They require regular impact assessments of AI tools to ensure against discrimination, disclosure of such evaluations to government agencies, internal policies, programs and safeguards to prevent foreseeable risks from AI, and an explanation of how the AI tool uses personal information and minimises chances of discrimination.
