White House AI Executive Order
President Biden issued a sweeping executive order on AI with the goal of promoting the “safe, secure, and trustworthy development and use of artificial intelligence.” The EO tasks government agencies with examining the application of AI to their areas of responsibility and provides them discretion to issue guidance specific to each agency. Additionally, the President designated Vice President Harris as the administration’s point-person on AI policy. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) will be foundational in the development of guidelines and best practices under the EO.
White House Voluntary AI Commitments
The White House secured voluntary commitments from seven leading AI companies – Amazon, Anthropic, Google, Inflection, Meta, Microsoft, and OpenAI – to help move toward “safe, secure, and transparent” development of AI technology.
NIST AI Risk Management Framework
In collaboration with the private and public sectors, NIST has developed a framework to better manage risks to individuals, organizations, and society associated with artificial intelligence (AI). The NIST AI Risk Management Framework (RMF) is intended for voluntary use and to improve the ability to incorporate trustworthiness considerations into the design, development, use, and evaluation of AI products, services, and systems.
