In the last session of Congress, Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR), Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ), and Representative Yvette Clarke (D-NY-9) introduced S.3572, the Algorithmic Accountability Act of 2022, intended to increase transparency and bring new government oversight of software, algorithms, and other automated systems. The legislation was an update of the 2019 Algorithmic Accountability Act.
As part of a long-running collaboration with the Yale Information Society Project on AI Governance, the Georgetown Law Institute for Technology Law & Policy (the Tech Institute) and its Global TechNet Working Group are hosting Senator Wyden on campus to discuss concerns about algorithmic bias and the future of algorithmic accountability legislation. Senator Wyden will deliver remarks and then engage in conversation with faculty from Georgetown and Yale. The event will then feature videotaped remarks from Representative Clarke, followed by a panel discussion with AI experts.
