The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) -- part of the US Department of Commerce -- is asking the public for input on an AI risk management framework, which the organization is in the process of developing as a way to "manage the risks posed by artificial intelligence." The Artificial Intelligence Risk Management Framework (AI RMF) will be a voluntary document that can be used by developers, evaluators and others as a way to "improve the trustworthiness of AI systems." NIST noted that the request for input comes after Congress and the White House asked the organization to create a framework for AI. Deputy Commerce Secretary Don Graves said in a statement that the document "could make a critical difference in whether or not new AI technologies are competitive in the marketplace." "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.
