Statement on Protecting Americans From Dangerous Algorithms Act

IA President and CEO K. Dane Snowden issued the following statement in response to the introduction of the Protecting Americans from Dangerous Algorithms Act:

“The internet industry shares the goal of a safe experience for all internet users. Smarter algorithms are the solution. With the amount of content posted to the internet in a day measuring in the billions, algorithms are the most efficient way to cast a wide net and they are the fastest way to keep up with the ever evolving methods of bad actors. Any legislation that exposes the use of algorithms to liability risk may unintentionally disrupt the many systems in place that protect consumers from potentially harmful content. More litigation isn’t the solution; continued technological innovation is.”
