As a key step in its effort to manage the risks posed by artificial intelligence (AI), the U.S. Department of Commerce's National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is requesting input from the public that will inform the development of AI risk management guidance.
Responses to the Request for Information (RFI), which appears today in the Federal Register, will help NIST draft an Artificial Intelligence Risk Management Framework (AI RMF), a guidance document for voluntary use intended to help technology developers, users and evaluators improve the trustworthiness of AI systems. The draft AI RMF will answer a direction from Congress for NIST to develop the framework, and it also forms part of NIST’s response to the Executive Order on Maintaining American Leadership in AI.
The AI RMF could make a critical difference in whether or not new AI technologies are competitive in the marketplace, according to Deputy Commerce Secretary Don Graves.
“Each day it becomes more apparent that artificial intelligence brings us a wide range of innovations and new capabilities that can advance our economy, security and quality of life. It is critical that we are mindful and equipped to manage the risks that AI technologies introduce along with their benefits,” Graves said. “This AI Risk Management Framework will help designers, developers and users of AI take all of these factors into account — and thereby improve U.S. capabilities in a very competitive global AI market.”
