STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1682
RE: S.C.R. No. 175
Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi
President of the Senate
Thirtieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2019
State of Hawaii
Your Committees on Technology and Commerce, Consumer Protection, and Health, to which was referred S.C.R. No. 175 entitled:
"SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION REQUESTING THE STATE TO CONVENE AN ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE ADVISORY COMMITTEE TO INVESTIGATE HOW TO IMPLEMENT, DEVELOP, AND REGULATE ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IN THE STATE,"
beg leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to request the State to convene an artificial intelligence advisory committee to investigate how to implement, develop, and regulate artificial intelligence in the State.
Your Committees received testimony in support of this measure from the Department of Human Services, Office of Enterprise Technology Services, and Hawaii Automobile Dealers' Association. Your Committees received comments on this measure from the Hawaii Technology Development Corporation.
Your Committees find that advances in artificial intelligence are being used to benefit industries and activities as diverse as transportation, medical diagnosis, customer service and office administration, and finance; however, many experts warn of artificial intelligence's dangers, such as autonomous weapons, social manipulation, and invasion of personal privacy. Your Committees find that the State should examine the best ways to integrate and approach artificial intelligence to assure that its use is beneficial to the quality, effectiveness, and productivity of government services and economic development in the State.
As affirmed by the records of votes of the members of your Committees on Technology and Commerce, Consumer Protection, and Health that are attached to this report, your Committees concur with the intent and purpose of S.C.R. No. 175 and recommend its adoption.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committees on Technology and Commerce, Consumer Protection, and Health,
ROSALYN H. BAKER, Chair
JARRETT KEOHOKALOLE, Chair
