Aiming to promote responsible innovation in automated systems—including those marketed as artificial intelligence or AI—four federal agencies have issued a joint statement pledging to monitor the development and use of these systems and vigorously enforce anti-discrimination laws as they become more common. The agencies issued the statement on April 25, 2023.
The agencies that signed on to the joint statement are:
In the joint statement, the agencies note that existing laws and regulations addressing discrimination and other unlawful practices apply to automated systems and innovative new technology use just as they do to other practices.
The joint statement notes that potential discrimination in automated systems may come from different sources, including problems with data sets, model access, and design and use. For example, automated system outcomes can be skewed by unrepresentative or imbalanced data sets, data sets that incorporate historical bias, or data sets that contain other types of errors. Automated
systems also can correlate data with protected classes, which can lead to discriminatory outcomes.
The joint statement was issued for informational purposes only and does not create any new legal rights or obligations. Nevertheless, employers that use automated systems to make employment decisions should become familiar with the joint statement and ensure that their policies and practices comply with all applicable laws enforced by the signing agencies.
“Automated systems” is used broadly to mean software and algorithmic processes, including AI, that are used to automate workflows and help people complete tasks or make decisions.
