Jun 20, 2023 | Political News

Tennessee Attorney General Jonathan Skrmetti has joined 22 other attorneys general in urging the National Telecommunications and Information Administration to advance artificial intelligence governance policies that prioritize robust transparency, reliable testing and assessment requirements, and allow for government oversight and enforcement for high-risk uses. 

In the letter, the attorneys general applaud the NTIA’s commitment to a rigorous and data-driven approach to developing AI governance policies. The attorneys general also recommend that the NTIA consider a risk-based approach, recognizing that some AI uses require greater oversight than others, such as when AI is developed or used to make decisions that result in legal or other significant effects on people.
