New Executive Order Outlines Principles for Using AI in Federal Agencies

Access Partnership shares the following:

On Thursday, December 3rd, President Trump signed an Executive Order (EO) on Promoting the Use of Trustworthy Artificial Intelligence in the Federal Government. The EO lays out nine Principles to guide agencies (excluding the Department of Defense and Intelligence Community) in the development, acquisition, and use of these technologies—tasking the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) with carrying out the necessary policy guidance. …

Within 180 days, OMB shall develop a roadmap of policies, including timelines for engaging the public. The EO also advises agencies to continue using voluntary consensus standards developed with industry and advises OMB to consider these standards in the development of new guidance.

Examples of the principles include that AI is used in a way that is “lawful and respectful of US values,” that AI’s “safety, security, and resiliency” is ensured in the face of forms of “exploitation,” that AI is “regularly monitored,” and that its use is “transparent” to “stakeholders” such as Congress and the public.
