A number of fresh initiatives have been revealed by the White House with the goal of directing and developing responsible artificial intelligence (AI) development, deployment, and research in the US.

These initiatives place a high priority on safeguarding people’s rights and security as AI tools like OpenAI’s popular chatbot ChatGPT gain popularity.

In addition to addressing possible hazards to society, security, and the economy, the Biden-Harris Administration has taken steps to promote ethical AI creation. These initiatives emphasize the general public’s welfare.

Initiatives in AI

Among these initiatives are the creation of the Blueprint for an AI Bill of Rights, the execution of executive orders, the introduction of the AI Risk Management Framework, the creation of a roadmap for the creation of a National AI Research Resource, as well as ongoing investments and actions to address national security issues related to AI.

The National AI R&D Strategic Plan has recently been updated by the White House’s Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP). The main goals and priorities for federal spending in AI research and development (R&D) are laid forth in this plan.

Experts from several federal government agencies have carefully prepared it while taking into account suggestions from the public. The strategy reaffirms the federal government’s dedication to funding R&D that fosters ethical innovation in the United States.

The OSTP has released a Request for Information (RFI) to gather public feedback on national objectives for reducing AI risks, in keeping with the Administration’s commitment to inclusion and collaboration.

The Administration’s continued efforts to create a comprehensive and coordinated plan for controlling AI risks and leveraging AI opportunities are greatly assisted by this RFI.

New Report on AI

The Office of Educational Technology at the US Department of Education has also just published a new paper titled “Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Future of Teaching and Learning: Insights and Recommendations.”

An overview of the opportunities and risks associated with applying artificial intelligence (AI) to teaching, learning, research, and assessment is given in this report.

The paper acknowledges the potential benefits and focuses on how AI may support instructors, help to reduce learning gaps, improve feedback mechanisms, and promote creative kinds of connections between educators and students.

However, it also emphasizes the risks connected to AI, particularly those related to algorithmic bias, and highlights the crucial importance of trust, safety, and the adoption of appropriate preventive measures.

Hearing Session

Additionally, the White House is planning a listening session with the aim of gathering firsthand information from employees regarding how companies use automated technologies for things like surveillance, monitoring, evaluation, and management.

Participants in the event will include policy experts, researchers, and lawmakers. The discussion will cover a wide range of industries, including call centers, trucking, warehousing, healthcare, and gig work.

This effort relies on an earlier Request for Information (RFI) that the OSTP issued with the goal of bettering the Administration’s understanding of the creation, application, prevalence, and effects of automated technology used for worker monitoring and tracking.
