WASHINGTON—Heritage Foundation Tech Policy Center Director Kara Frederick released the following statement Thursday applauding Sen. John Thune for introducing the Artificial Intelligence Research, Innovation, and Accountability Act. This legislation takes a narrowly targeted approach to AI governance, which avoids innovation-killing overregulation. 

Frederick emphasized the importance of transparency in AI decision-making, stating:  

 “This bill rightfully prioritizes transparency for AI in high-risk settings, ensuring accountability while leaving room for innovation. Striking this balance is critical to harness the power of AI while safeguarding Americans from potential harm. 

 

“The Heritage Foundation’s Tech Policy Center commends Sen. Thune for his AI policy leadership and encourages lawmakers to support this common-sense legislation.”
