President Biden Oct. 30 directed federal agencies to take certain actions to protect Americans from the potential risks of artificial intelligence systems while promoting innovation and competition. The executive order calls for the Department of Health and Human Services to establish a safety program to regulate health care AI practices and for developers of high-risk AI systems to share their safety testing results and other relevant information with the federal government. Among other actions, the order urges Congress to enact data privacy safeguards for Americans, and requires federal agencies to develop best practices to investigate and prosecute AI-related discrimination and guidelines to prevent fraudulent and deceptive AI-generated content.
