President Biden today issued an Executive Order on “Safe, Secure, and Trustworthy Artificial Intelligence”. A fact sheet from the White House states that the order “establishes new standards for AI safety and security, protects Americans’ privacy, advances equity and civil rights, stands up for consumers and workers, promotes innovation and competition, advances American leadership around the world, and more.”

Among the AI directives in the Executive Order are the following actions:

  • Require that developers of the most powerful AI systems share their safety test results and other critical information with the U.S. government.
  • Develop standards, tools, and tests to help ensure that AI systems are safe, secure, and trustworthy.
  • Protect Americans’ privacy by prioritizing federal support for accelerating the development and use of privacy-preserving techniques.
  • Evaluate how agencies collect and use commercially available information.
  • Provide clear guidance to landlords, Federal benefits programs, and federal contractors to keep AI algorithms from being used to exacerbate discrimination.
  • Address algorithmic discrimination.
  • Ensure fairness throughout the criminal justice system.
  • Advance the responsible use of AI in healthcare.
  • Shape AI’s potential to transform education.
  • Develop principles and best practices to mitigate the harms and maximize the benefits of AI for workers.
  • Catalyze AI research across the United States through a pilot of the National AI Research Resource—a tool that will provide AI researchers and students access to key AI resources and data—and expanded grants for AI research in vital areas like healthcare and climate change.
  • Expand bilateral, multilateral, and multi-stakeholder engagements to collaborate on AI.
  • Promote the safe, responsible, and rights-affirming development and deployment of AI abroad to solve global challenges.
  • Issue guidance for agencies’ use of AI, including clear standards to protect rights and safety, improve AI procurement, and strengthen AI deployment.
