Rise of the Machines: Artificial Intelligence and Its Growing Impact on U.S. Policy
United States. Congress. House. Committee on Oversight and Government Reform (2007-)
Hurd, Will; Kelly, Robin L.
"Beginning in February of 2018, the Subcommittee on Information Technology of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform held a series of hearings on artificial intelligence (AI). In connection with those hearings, majority and minority staff met jointly with experts from academia, industry, and government, and reviewed multiple reports from leading AI experts. Through these efforts, several points became evident. First, AI is an immature technology; its abilities in many areas are still relatively new. Second, the workforce is affected by AI; whether that effect is positive, negative, or neutral remains to be seen. Third, AI requires massive amounts of data, which may invade privacy or perpetuate bias, even when using data for good purposes. Finally, AI has the potential to disrupt every sector of society in both anticipated and unanticipated ways. In light of that potential for disruption, it's critical that the federal government address the different challenges posed by AI, including its current and future applications. The following paper presents lessons learned from the Subcommittee's oversight and hearings on AI and sets forth recommendations for moving forward."

Citing HSDL Resources

Documents from the HSDL collection cannot automatically be added to citation managers (e.g. Refworks, Endnotes, etc). This HSDL abstract page contains some of the pieces you may need when citing a resource, such as the author, publisher and date information. We highly recommend you always refer to the resource itself as the most accurate source of information when citing. Here are some sources that can help with formatting citations (particularly for government documents).
