The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) will be hosting a workshop on May 30th at its Gaithersburg headquarters that will include discussions to aid in the development of a plan for federal engagement in artificial intelligence standards. All interested stakeholders are welcome to attend, though space is limited.

The overall goals of the workshop are to provide NIST with a better understanding of the following:

  • Current status and plans regarding the availability, use, and development of AI technical standards and tools in support of reliable, robust, and trustworthy systems that use AI technologies;
  • Needs and challenges regarding the existence, availability, use, and development of AI standards and tools; and
  • The current and potential future role of Federal agencies regarding the existence, availability, use and development of AI technical standards and tools in order to meet the nation’s needs.

Based on the discussions that take place, following the workshop, NIST hopes to produce an annotated outline with a blueprint for federal engagement in the development of technical standards and related tools in support of reliable, robust and trustworthy systems that use AI technologies.

For those interested in participating but are unable to attend in person, there will also be a webcast of the event.
