The National Institute of Standards and Technology issued on Federal Register a request for information on technical standards and associated tools for artificial intelligence.
“The inputs of the U.S. stakeholder community are essential to inform development of a plan that will support continued American leadership in AI,” Walter Copan, NIST director and undersecretary of commerce for standards and technology, said in a statement published Wednesday.
NIST said the RFI has three focus areas: developing plans to support the creation of AI-related technical standards and tools, prioritizing federal engagement in AI standardization and defining U.S. leadership in AI standards. Comments are due on May 31. NIST issued the RFI in support of an executive order signed in February to maintain the country’s edge in AI.
