Making Artificial Intelligence Work for Workers
December 08, 2023
On Oct. 30, President Biden issued a landmark Executive Order on the Safe, Secure, and Trustworthy Development and Use of Artificial Intelligence. This executive order advances the Biden-Harris administration’s comprehensive strategy for governing the development and use of artificial intelligence (AI) safely and responsibly. A key component of that strategy – especially for us at the Department of Labor – is the commitment to supporting our nation’s workers. This commitment involves ensuring that workers not only benefit from AI’s opportunities, such as new jobs and improved job quality, but are also protected from its dangers, including job displacement, discrimination, the undermining of workers’ rights and worsening job quality.
