The Morning After: US government announces AI Security Institute

Following President Joe Biden’s sweeping executive order regarding AI development last week, yesterday at the UK AI Security Summit, Vice President Kamala Harris announced even more machine learning initiatives, as well as the establishment of the United States AI Security Institute Also announced. In collaboration with the Department of Commerce, the Biden Administration will establish the United States AI Security Institute (US AISI) within NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology). It will be responsible for creating and publishing guidelines, benchmark testing, best practices, and more for evaluating potentially dangerous AI systems. The tests could also include the red-team exercises that President Biden mentioned in his executive order last week.

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) — it’s a acronym-heavy morning — will release the administration’s first draft policy guidance on government AI use later this week.
