USA: NIST requests information for development of AI risk management framework
The National Institute of Standards and Technology ('NIST') announced, on 29 July 2021, that it had requested input from the public to develop the draft of an Artificial Intelligence Risk Management Framework. In particular, NIST explained that it solicited this Request for Information ('RFI') in order to understand how organisations and individuals involved with developing and using artificial intelligence ('AI') systems might be able to address the full scope of AI risks and how a framework for managing these risks might be constructed. The RFI mentions specific topics and questions, such as the greatest challenges in improving management of AI related risks, how organisations currently define and manage characteristics of AI trustworthiness, and the extent to which AI risks are incorporated into an organisations' overarching risk management, similarly to the management of risks related to cybersecurity, privacy, and safety.
Input can be submitted by completing the response form and submitting it to [email protected] by 19 August 2021.
