How Can Access to AI Resources Support Human Rights?

There's a big problem looming with artificial intelligence: only a handful of people have the resources to make or work on the most sophisticated AI. This means we'll lack the input and ingenuity from most of the country, and their interests won't be properly protected -- especially people who are already underrepresented in tech. To begin addressing this, Congress requested and the Biden Administration is working on a blueprint for a National AI Research Resource. The Administration is also crafting an AI Bill of Rights. Recently, a bipartisan, bicameral group in Congress recently sent a letter calling for those efforts to be redoubled and work in tandem. Why is it so critical for a broader group to be able to research, test, and apply AI technology? How does that work in practice, and what are policymakers doing to support those goals? What are startups and others doing to make progress while the federal government works towards these policy goals?
