"AI is a technology of extraction: from the energy and minerals needed to build and sustain its infrastructure, to the exploited workers behind 'automated' services, to the data AI collects from us."

“The United States must work with other democratic countries to establish red lines for certain A.I. applications and ensure fairness, accountability and transparency as A.I. systems are deployed . . . The rate of technological change is accelerating. Countries that seek to preserve fundamental rights must act before it is too late.”
"Algorithmic accountability is a complex topic, but the impact cuts broadly across life in America, from jobs and credit to housing and criminal justice."
“This critical question of automated decision-making lies at the heart of modern data protection law, ensuring fairness and transparency about the decisions impacting individuals.”
"Democratic countries should establish algorithmic transparency to ensure fairness and accountability in the digital world."
“I do want to emphasize how very important it is to move forward today on a project to establish algorithmic transparency and a set of framework principles for the deployment of AI that protects the interests of the individual.”
“As decisions are automated, processes become more opaque, less accountable. . . . At the intersection of law and technology — knowledge of the algorithm is a fundamental right, a human right”

"The United States needs comprehensive privacy legislation to safeguard the personal data of Americans. We must also establish an agency charged with advocating for the privacy interests of America. Surveillance technology takes hold quickly. There is not much time."
