NIST Solicits Feedback on Future Artificial Intelligence Guidance

The National Institute of Standards and Technology is asking for public comments to inform White House-mandated guidance on trustworthy artificial intelligence.

A new request for information contains questions on AI red-teaming, managing generative AI and synthetic content risks and developing worldwide technical standards for AI development, NIST said.

President Joe Biden recently issued an executive order tasking the agency to regulate AI development and use. The Energy and Homeland Security departments are required to apply the resulting standards to critical infrastructure organizations.

According to Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo, the government is obligated to utilize the technology “for good” and to mitigate its potential harm to the public. She added that NIST’s efforts will maintain the United States’ leadership in responsible AI development.

In a press release, NIST Director Laurie Locascio invited the AI community to engage with her organization to aid in establishing an “unbiased scientific understanding” of the technology.

Responses to the RFI are due on Feb. 2, 2024.
