A new bill would force companies to check their algorithms for bias

US legislators UU They introduced a bill that would require large companies to audit machine learning systems, such as facial recognition or ad segmentation algorithms, for bias. The Algorithmic Responsibility Act is sponsored by Senators Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Ron Wyden (D-OR), with an equivalent House of Representatives sponsored by Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-NY). If approved, I would ask the Federal Trade Commission to create rules to evaluate "highly sensitive" automated systems. The companies would have to evaluate if the algorithms that drive these tools are partial or discriminatory, as well as if they pose a risk to the privacy or safety of consumers.

The Algorithmic Responsibility Law is aimed at the main companies with access to large amounts of information. It would apply to companies that earn more than $ 50 million per year, have information on at least 1 million people or devices, or act primarily as data intermediaries that buy and sell consumer data.
