Premier submitted comments to the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology's (PCASTs) Generative AI Working group on strategies for identifying and promoting the beneficial deployment of generative AI, as well as guardrails to mitigate associated risks. The Generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) Working Group will help inform the Biden-Harris Administration as it develops a National AI Strategy, charting a path for the United States to harness the benefits of emerging AI technologies. In comments, Premier urged the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) to advance policies that mitigate risk of bias, discrimination and inappropriate use of AI through transparent data standards, guidelines, public disparity testing results, comprehensive risk assessment and workforce training efforts.
Premier also recommended that the Working Group tailor any AI technology explainability requirements to specific groups of end-users of each AI system. Finally, Premier supports “watermarking” policies that make it apparent when recommendations are made by AI so that users can consciously respond and evaluate the information accordingly. While Premier believes that AI can play a critical role in advancing healthcare and spurring innovation, Premier does not believe that AI can or should replace the practice of medicine.
