Intel today published a new report on artificial intelligence and public policy that includes specific recommendations on privacy and security: “Where the data used for AI originates from identifiable individuals, appropriate protections should be implemented to ensure that data is deidentified, lawfully accessed, processed, and kept safe. Robust privacy regulatory frameworks for the protection of personal data and cybersecurity should also apply to AI implementations.”

Intel and Artificial Intelligence

Intel powers the cloud and billions of smart, connected computing devices. Due to the decreasing cost of computing enabled by Moore’s Law1 and the increasing availability of connectivity, these connected devices are now generating millions of terabytes of data every day. Recent breakthroughs in computer and data science give us the ability to timely analyze and derive immense value from that data. As Intel distributes the computing capability of the data center across the entire global network, the impact of artificial intelligence is significantly increasing. Artificial intelligence is creating an opportunity to drive a new wave of economic progress while solving some of the world’s most difficult problems. This is the artificial intelligence (AI) opportunity. To allow AI to realize its potential, governments need to create a public policy environment that fosters AI innovation, while also mitigating unintended societal consequences. This document presents Intel’s AI public policy recommendations.
