reported about Illinois’s new AI law (first in the US) going into effect on January 1, 2020 since “AI tools that analyze a person’s expressions, for example, could inadvertently discriminate against a job candidate who has a disability that impacts their ability to smile or display other facial cues as recognized by the software.”  The September 20, 2019 article entitled “AI Makes Job Interviews Faster, But Compliance Harder” included these comments:

…the Artificial Intelligence Video Interview Act addresses responsibilities companies hold with regards to consent, transparency and the destruction of the original video as well as all subsequent copies.

The law could set the table for a patchwork of similar laws to come—and that may not be a scenario that companies or their legal teams are eager to embrace.

Definitely a patchwork of AI laws in the offing!  What do you think?
