VERMONT ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TASKFORCE

PUBLIC HEARING, JULY 25, 2019 from 6 PM to 8 PM

NORTHERN VERMONT UNIVERSITY, LYNDON CAMPUS,

ACADEMIC STUDENT ACTIVITY CENTER, Room 214


The Vermont Artificial Intelligence Taskforce was created by Act 137 of the 2018 session of the Vermont Legislature “to investigate the field of artificial intelligence in the State and make recommendations on the responsible growth of Vermont’s emerging technology markets, the use of artificial intelligence in State government, and State regulation of the artificial intelligence field.” For purposes of Act 137, artificial intelligence is defined as “models and systems performing functions generally associated with human intelligence, such as reasoning and learning.” The Taskforce has 14 members – state employees and citizens designated by specified public officials and organizations. The Taskforce must submit a report to the Legislature by January 1, 2020 specifically addressing:


A summary of the current development and use of artificial intelligence in Vermont;
A proposal of a definition of artificial intelligence, if needed;
A proposal for State regulation of artificial intelligence, if needed;
A proposal for the responsible and ethical development of artificial intelligence in the State, including an identification of potential risks and benefits from such development; and
A recommendation on whether the General Assembly should establish a permanent commission to study the artificial intelligence field.
From its meetings, the Taskforce has learned that artificial intelligence is a powerful and pervasive technology that is, and will to a greater degree, affect the lives and livelihoods of all Vermonters. In reaching its conclusions and recommendations, the Taskforce seeks to receive from a series of public meetings citizen information and opinions on artificial intelligence that will help it develop its report to the Legislature. The Lyndon public meeting is the second such meeting.
