    The EU has limited access to personal data that US surveillance agencies can transfer cross border that also applies to private businesses like tech companies and which also means the U.S. has not done this. Private companies like OneTrust are selling tools & seminars to companies to help them navigate this for their international business and products.

    The US government needs to protect personal data like the EU which also simplifies businesses that operate in the U.S. and globally to comply with out developing many country compliant products.

    Not unlike what is happening with AI risk management where the EU has centralized regulatory approach with more transparency in order to focus on high risk uses while the U.S. has distributed it across several federal agencies and has limited national legislation to current business practices due to the influence of big tech money on legislation in Congress per an exit interview by Rep Buck.

    But then MTG is using up Congressional time trying to oust her party's speaker and Dems are trying to figure out how to keep the House functioning as they need to renew the FAA by May 10th to keep planes in the sky safely.

    Shouldn't the top priority be our safety- our privacy and data - and safety flying in the skies? But then we have states taking away healthcare safety and privacy with abortion bans and access to private reproductive health data.

    " The EU-US DPF restores an important mechanism for the cross-border transfer of personal data and introduces limitations on US surveillance agencies' access to EU data beyond what is “necessary and proportionate” as well as an independent dispute resolution mechanism. "

    "The U.S. approach to AI risk management is highly distributed across federal agencies, many adapting to AI without new legal authorities. Meanwhile, the U.S. has invested in non-regulatory infrastructure, such as a new AI risk management framework, evaluations of facial recognition software, and extensive funding of AI research. The EU approach to AI risk management is characterized by a more comprehensive range of legislation tailored to specific digital environments. The EU plans to place new requirements on high-risk AI in socioeconomic processes, the government use of AI, and regulated consumer products with AI systems. Other EU legislation enables more public transparency and influence over the design of AI systems in social media and e-commerce."

    "The EU and U.S. strategies share a conceptual alignment on a risk-based approach, agree on key principles of trustworthy AI, and endorse an important role for international standards. However, the specifics of these AI risk management regimes have more differences than similarities. Regarding many specific AI applications, especially those related to socioeconomic processes and online platforms, the EU and U.S. are on a path to significant misalignment."

    We must be care not to waste to opertunity for AI to solve medical challenges! We just need to remove the personal contact information from the medical records! 
    PBS "Nova" just did a program on this and really explained how this is possible!

    Privacy is the Right to be Secure in one's possesions and one's person and one's confidences.  We'll see what the Supremely Corrupt Catholic Court does.  They've already taken American women's Right to Privacy away by empowering extremist republicans to monitor and control their wombs...

    Be very careful on what laws you pass on restrictions on data! PBS has an excellent program on date and it's uses! Nova is the series! 
    The show is the best hour on this issue yet that I have seen! 
    I plan on watching it again! 
    one point that was brought out was how to use AI and medical records to find cures for a lot of our current issues! That would save lives and millions of dollars!

    The so called big data revolutionizing farming has rendered farmers totally exposed to big corps who can now negotiate prices down to bare cost or below and thus push them into bankruptcy

    corps buy the land for nothing now farmers become slaves 

    add automation and AI and you have decimated family farms

    we have seen this unfold and now will accelerate

    ditto manufacturing

    when 80% of population are unemployed or under employed WHO is going to buy all the goods & services from these rich few? 

    Invest in human capital NOT in automatons / AI / big data / big corps

    Speaking of AI and Privacy

    Lindsey Graham's phone was hacked while he was attending a panel discussion about artificial intelligence regulations.

    By Frank Thorp V and Megan Lebowitz
    WASHINGTON — Sen. Lindsey Graham said Wednesday that the FBI was in possession of his phone after he received a message from someone impersonating Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.

    "I get a message, I think, from Schumer," Graham, R-S.C., said during a "It ain't from Schumer."

    ...

    "And the next thing you know, my phone is — " he trailed off. "I don't know. Anything you can create apparently can be hacked."

    ...

     "'The Sergeant at Arms is investigating a possible hack of Senator Graham’s phone,' Graham's spokesperson, Taylor Reidy, told NBC News in a statement."

    Yes, secure our privacy from AIs instructed to mine privacy data; HOWEVER, we need our privacy secured PERIOD.

    We need our privacy to be secure on All Websites, Blogs, Vlogs, Shopping Sites, and all forms of Social Media, as well as Apps.

    I think we, citizens, should own our data.  any company who wishes to make use of it, for marketing ect. would have to pay for its use.

    Let me be clear. AI should not have access to private data unless the person explicitly consents to the specific data and what it will be used for.

    The reason I am opposed to this law in particular is because we should not overcomplicate our legislation by passing piecemeal laws one on top of the other. Rather, we need a single, broadly applied law that basically says that no entity may use the private data of another without explicit approval.

    This is a matter of consent, and consent is needed in EVERY personal matter that I can think of at the moment.

    Yes!!!!  Private data/personal data should be protected.  All individuals should have the right to be advised if that data is being proposed to be used, how it is to be used, who is going to use it and why, and ultimately the right to provide consent or deny use of that data.

    AI should be regulated in every possible way before it gets out of hand, or in the wrong hands does a great amount of damage that no one will recover from

    This is an important issue.  It has been revealed that many of the AI companies have been ignoring copytights in using material for AI learning - this is wrong and for companies to exploit personal data this is also wrong.  Legislation should be enacted to curtail this wild west atmosphere around AI.

    AI is just another method to attempt to control our way of thinking, our interests, and purchasing power.  When it comes to human beoings, "one size" does not fit all.  Between DNA and genic chemistry, we are all similar yet still different.  What works for one doesn't always work for another.  The divercity is what makes life exciting and an open mind should be first and foremost.  If you don't like what corporate  entities and government are dishing out, keep your damn moiuth shut and your thoughts to yourself.  I should be allowed options, yet at the same time they should never be forced onto another.  We each have a path to walk in this "school of hard knocks" that we don't need any interference from the control freaks and rtheir AI BS.

    Our country has never had strong data privacy protections the way some others, such as the EU, have, and it's about time Congress fixed this.

    We should all have explicit say over how our data is protected and used, and who can see that data.

    I do not want any AI able to see and use my data in any way other than to serve me, and I hope stronger laws are passed to ensure this.
