Written Testimony on Governance of Artificial Intelligence: Governing AI for Shared Prosperity in a Democracy



Our country stands at a crossroads as artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities race ahead, requiring a new social compact between technology and democracy.

As we described at the AI Insight Forum in September 2023, AI holds enormous promise, but also poses potential threats to civil rights and our democracy absent ethical, constitutionally designed governance.

A forthcoming series of papers from UnidosUS will propose three pillars for inclusive AI governance: first, integrated oversight for new and existing systems based on constitutional and democratic standards that operate as a baseline for human freedoms; second, participatory engagement by impacted groups; and third, human infrastructure investments to build capacity and ensure the benefits of technology are shared.

This testimony suggests some models and ideas for implementing each of these pillars.
