Intel seeks feedback on a draft model bill that encourages policymakers and stakeholders to participate in transparent discussions related to personal data privacy.
The company said Thursday the model legislation aims to inspire Congress to develop a federal law that will direct companies in the proper use of personal information.
The effort comes as several issues are beginning to arise from the increasing collection of personal data without the consent of consumers.
Intel developed the model bill based on a white paper published in October, which discussed various policy principles for safety and privacy in an artificial intelligence-driven period.
The technology firm stressed in the paper that any new regulatory efforts for information privacy should be comprehensive, neutral and supportive of free data flow, and that organizations should adopt risk-based accountability approaches that will help reduce risks in technologies such as artificial intelligence.
David Hoffman, associate general counsel and global privacy officer at Intel, said there is a need for the U.S. to enact a law that protects consumer privacy and creates a framework that will help new industries grow.
Privacy authorities can review and leave comments regarding the model legislation on Intel’s interactive website.
