Navigate Colorado SB205: Ensuring Responsible AI Practices

Prepare for Colorado’s SB205 to ensure fair AI practices, strengthen consumer trust, and enhance consumer protections for artificial intelligence.

What is Colorado SB205?

On May 17, 2024, Colorado Governor Jared Polis signed SB24-205 into law, introducing comprehensive consumer protections for artificial intelligence (AI) systems. SB205 imposes rigorous requirements on developers and deployers of high-risk AI systems to safeguard consumers from algorithmic discrimination. Due to be enforced from 1 February 2026, the countdown for compliance has begun.

What are the requirements of SB205?

SB205 requires developers and deployers of high-risk AI systems to document their systems extensively,  including describing intended uses, data sources, and measures taken to mitigate discrimination risks. It also mandates public disclosure of high-risk AI systems and reporting of discrimination risks to the Attorney General.

How does SB205 define an algorithm and a predictive model?

Artificial intelligence system means any machine-based system that, for any explicit or implicit objective, infers from the inputs the system receives  how to generate outputs, including content, decisions, predictions, or recommendations, that can influence physical or virtual environments.

What is required for insurance companies to comply with SB205?

Insurance companies must assess AI systems for algorithmic discrimination, implement risk management policies, maintain detailed documentation, and provide regular training. (Section 6-1-1702, 6-1-1703)
