Sep 27, 2018

WASHINGTON — CompTIA, the leading trade association for the global technology industry, released the following statement from CompTIA Executive Vice President for Public Advocacy Elizabeth Hyman regarding the introduction of the “Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Government Act” by Senators Brian Schatz, Cory Gardner, Rob Portman, and Kamala Harris.

“The proposed legislation encourages broader use of artificial intelligence technologies across the entire federal government through, among other things, development of a strategy for investing and using AI.  Such an emphasis will spur agencies to explore the potential these emerging technologies will certainly deliver to improve the vital work of the government. In addition, this legislation brings together industry and government to explore the opportunities and challenges AI presents. We applaud the leadership of Senators Schatz, Gardner, Portman and Harris.

“CompTIA supports these forward-looking efforts by lawmakers. AI offers governments and businesses an unprecedented opportunity to improve how products and services are delivered to all people. We look forward to working with Congress as they craft smart policies that support and drive America’s leadership in developing innovative technologies.”
