Abstract:

The development and use of Artificial Intelligence AI promises tremendous advantages for individuals and society as a whole. Despite the potential benefits to three primary domains--individual, society, and the military--there exist critical vulnerabilities that erode trust in its use. Several current leading companies in this field have acknowledged efforts to gather private user information that could be misused and their data systems breached. The influence of this technology is becoming a single point of failure for all aspects of society in the United States and requires an ethical framework from which Congress can ensure trust in the services AI provides.
