“The Executive Order is a welcomed and necessary step forward in ensuring both the trusted deployment of AI and seizing U.S. competitiveness and leadership in AI development.”
The Executive Order establishes standards for AI safety and security, prioritizing the protection of Americans’ privacy, advancing equity and civil rights, and ensuring consumer and worker rights. Key aspects of the Executive Order are the adaptation and incorporation of the NIST AI Risk Management Framework into safety and cybersecurity guidelines, minimum risk-management practices for government uses of AI, and a coordinated effort with international partners to implement AI-related consensus standards.
Industry leaders such as Microsoft and Alphabet have praised the order, emphasizing the importance of responsible AI governance.
