OMB / OSTP Comment Deadline: Guidance for Regulation of Artificial Intelligence Applications

Friday, March 13, 2020 - 5:00pm

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and the Office of Science and Technology Policy seek public comments on a draft Memorandum that provides guidance to all Federal agencies to inform the development of regulatory and non-regulatory approaches regarding technologies and industrial sectors that are empowered or enabled by artificial intelligence (AI) and consider ways to reduce barriers to the development and adoption of AI technologies.

The draft Memorandum calls on agencies, when considering regulations or policies related to AI applications, to promote advancements in technology and innovation, while protecting American technology, economic and national security, privacy, civil liberties, and other American values, including the principles of freedom, human rights, the rule of law, and respect for intellectual property.

Members of the public may submit comments online at Regulations.gov. More information is available at this Federal Register notice.
