USA: NIST announces program for AI evaluation

On May 28, 2024, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) announced that it is launching a new testing, evaluation, validation, and verification (TEVV) program to improve understanding of artificial intelligence's (AI) capabilities and impacts. The TEVV program, entitled Assessing Risks and Impacts of AI (ARIA), specifically aims to help users identify whether an AI technology will be valid, safe, and reliable, among other things, once deployed. ARIA expands on the current AI Risk Management Framework (AI RMF), released in January 2023, and helps to operationalize the AI RMF's risk measurement function, which recommends that quantitative and qualitative techniques be used to analyze and monitor AI risks and impacts. NIST highlighted that the ARIA program will help assess risks and impacts to help determine how AI systems work within society.
