Hello INFORMS Members,
This week the Biden-Harris Administration announced three efforts that will advance the research, development, and deployment of responsible AI. With many members doing work in these ares, I thought you may find it of interest. Please find a clip below. Let me know if you have any questions.
Yesterday, the Biden-Harris Administration announced three efforts that will advance the research, development, and deployment of responsible AI that protects individuals' rights and safety and delivers results for the American people.
First, we issued an update to the National AI Research and Development Strategic Plan. This plan builds on plans issued in 2016 and 2019, and sets out key priorities and research goals to guide federal investments in AI research and development (R&D). It will focus federal investments in R&D to promote responsible American innovation, serve the public good, protect people's rights and safety, uphold democratic values, and ensure continued U.S. leadership in the development and use of trustworthy AI systems.
Second, we released a request for information to seek public input on national priorities for mitigating AI risks, protecting people's rights and safety, and harnessing AI to improve lives. Responses to this RFI will inform the Administration's efforts to advance a cohesive and comprehensive strategy to manage AI risks and harness AI opportunities.
Third, the Department of Education's Office of Educational Technology released a new report, AI and the Future of Teaching and Learning: Insights and Recommendations, summarizing the risks and opportunities related to AI in teaching, learning, research, and assessment."
