US Senate WG releases AI policy roadmap

The bipartisan U.S. Senate Artificial Intelligence (AI) Working Group — Sens. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Mike Rounds (R-SD), Martin Heinrich (D-NM), and Todd Young (R-IN) — released a roadmap for AI policy May 15. The document was developed following a series of discussions with AI industry representatives from various sectors. It summarizes lessons learned from those discussions and provides high-level policy priority recommendations for Senate committees of jurisdiction cutting across AI domains, including healthcare.

The roadmap is generally aligned with the findings and recommendations of the National AI Advisory Committee, as well as input previously provided to congressional leaders by the American College of Radiology® (ACR®) and other medical stakeholders. With respect to healthcare, the document promotes predictable oversight mechanisms, appropriate guardrails protecting patients and their privacy, AI transparency and explainability, bias prevention and mitigation, federal research funding, and payment for appropriate use.

Moving forward, the policy priorities outlined by the working group may be reflected in appropriations and other legislation relevant to AI topics. American College of Radiology
