The National Institute of Standards and Technology is looking for ideas on technical standards and related tools for artificial intelligence.
The Request for Information comes on the heels of February’s executive order on maintaining U.S. leadership in AI. It calls on NIST to come up with a plan for governmentwide engagement in developing standards and tools to support systems that use AI.
NIST said the responses to the RFI will help create a common understanding of the current state, plans, challenges and opportunities around the development and availability of AI technical standards and related tools, as well as federal agencies’ standards-related priorities.
The RFI has three key areas: the status of and plans for AI technical standards and related tools development, defining and achieving U.S. leadership in AI standards, and prioritizing federal government engagement in AI standardization. Topics for which information is requested include current standards and tools, the organizations that today address the need for standards, and the federal government’s unique needs.
The deadline for comments is5 p.m. May 31. and may be submitted via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
