Michael Kratsios, federal chief technology officer and a 2019 Wash100 Award winner, said the White House will soon release guidance on how agencies should oversee and regulate artificial intelligence applications, Nextgov reported Tuesday.

“This will be the first document that has legal force around the way that agencies should be looking at regulating artificial intelligence technologies,” Kratsios said at the Politico AI Summit Tuesday. “I think it will set the tone globally on the way that we can be pro-innovation while also protecting American safety.”

He stated that each agency should oversee the development of AI in specific areas and the memorandum will provide agencies a framework for their regulatory approaches with regard to the use of the technology. The memo is part of an AI executive order signed in February.
