“The U.S. must embrace technology such as artificial intelligence to improve the provision and efficiency of government services to the American people and ensure its application shows due respect for our Nation’s values, including privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties.” says the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy in its inaugural report on artificial intelligence.

The report summarizes the initiative’s progress to date and sets forth a “long-term vision” for AI. Notably, the 36-page document mentions the word “privacy” 18 times. “We remain committed to supporting the development and application of AI in a way that promotes public trust, protects civil liberties, and respects the privacy and dignity of every individual,” U.S. Chief Technology Officer Michael Kratsios and Deputy U.S. CTO Lynne Parker state in their introduction.
