Who informs the US government about AI responsibility?

Concerning trends: Big tech dominance and perpetuating gender stereotypes


➤ Background


👉 The US government is holding meetings to hear from stakeholders about AI risks. The most recent one was at last week’s bipartisan AI working group.


👉But who attends the meetings?


👉 I’m starting to notice some concerning trends. Last week’s meeting illustrates them.




➤ Here is the list of attendees at last week's hearing


Trends:


➤ Opposing sides: Big tech vs. social justice


😞 Only big tech or social justice advocates

😞No small/medium businesses

😞Academics barely represented

😞 Problem:


There are more sides to AI ethics issues



➤Big tech dominance


😞Big tech reps > social justice advocates

😞Some big tech had two reps at the meeting

😞Problem 1: Amplifies big tech perspectives

😞Problem 2: Increases big tech influence on regulation

😞Problem 3: Risk of weakening small businesses



➤ Perpetuating gender stereotypes


😞All big tech reps were men, mostly white

😞Almost all social justice folks were women

😞This perpetuates gender stereotypes

😞It also diminishes the perspective diversity
