News U.S. Federal Agencies Issue Ambitious Roadmap For AI Development


The executive order directed NIST to develop a plan that would: "ensure that technical standards minimize vulnerability to attacks from malicious actors and reflect Federal priorities for innovation, public trust, and public confidence in systems that use AI technologies; and develop international standards to promote and protect those priorities."
Admirable goals. However, I'm skeptical they'll put the necessary funding behind it.

Also, NIST isn't really the first agency that comes to mind, in regards to minimizing vulnerability, and increasing public trust & confidence in AI. I'd think you want someone like DARPA to take the lead on those initiatives and provide a set of recommendations. NIST could then take those and work with industry to produce the relevant standards.
