NIST starts work on artificial intelligence risk management framework
- Published: Friday, 30 July 2021 09:02
The US NIST has made a Request for Information (RFI) call, as it commences the development of a risk management framework for artificial intelligence. Through the RFI, which appears in the Federal Register, NIST will gather initial information for a draft guidance document intended to help AI developers, users, and evaluators improve the trustworthiness of AI systems.
Through the RFI NIST hopes to understand:
- The greatest challenges in improving management of AI-related risks;
- How organizations currently define and manage characteristics of AI trustworthiness; and
- The extent to which AI risks are incorporated into organizations’ overarching risk management, such as the management of risks related to cybersecurity, privacy and safety.
The deadline for responses to the RFI is August 19th 2021.
NIST also plans to hold a workshop in September where attendees can help develop the outline for the draft AI risk management framework.
