FPF Joins the NIST Artificial Intelligence Safety Consortium
The Future of Privacy Forum (FPF) is collaborating with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in the U.S. Artificial Intelligence Safety Institute Consortium to develop science-based and empirically backed guidelines and standards for AI measurement and policy, laying the foundation for AI safety across the world.
This initiative will help prepare the U.S. to address the capabilities of the next generation of AI models or systems, from frontier models to new applications and approaches, with appropriate risk management strategies.
“As an organization that has been at the forefront of responsible data practices for more than a decade, FPF is honored to be included in the list of influential and diverse stakeholders involved in the U.S. AI Safety Institute Consortium assembled by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. We look forward to contributing to the development of safe and trustworthy AI that is a force for societal good.”Jules Polonetsky, CEO, FPF
The consortium includes more than 200 member companies and organizations that are on the frontlines of creating and using the most advanced AI systems and hardware, the nation’s largest companies and most innovative startups, civil society and academic teams that are building the foundational understanding of how AI can and will transform our society, and representatives of professions with deep engagement in AI’s use today.
The consortium will be housed under the U.S. AI Safety Institute (USAISI) and will contribute to priority actions outlined in President Biden’s landmark Executive Order, including developing guidelines for red-teaming, capability evaluations, risk management, safety and security, and watermarking synthetic content.
