The Frontier Model Forum is proud to be a founding member of the new U.S. Artificial Intelligence Safety Institute Consortium (AISIC) announced today by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Established as part of NIST’s response to the Biden Administration’s Executive Order on Safe, Secure, and Trustworthy Development and Use of AI, the consortium will focus on convening stakeholders from across the AI ecosystem to develop new methods and standards for measuring and assuring the safety of AI systems.
We believe that multi-stakeholder processes are vital for developing safe and trustworthy AI and that AISIC has a critical role to play in advancing collaboration across the AI safety ecosystem. We commend U.S. Commerce Secretary Raimondo for her leadership in driving the consortium forward and look forward to participating in the consortium under the leadership of the U.S. AI Safety Institute’s inaugural director Elizabeth Kelly and Chief Technology Officer Elham Tabassi. We’re excited to join fellow industry partners, civil society leaders, and other AI experts as active participants.
The Frontier Model Forum was born out of a shared belief that advanced AI systems have the potential to benefit the world tremendously, so long as they are developed and deployed responsibly. As those systems become ever more capable, ongoing collaboration between government, civil society, and industry will be vital to ensure that frontier AI is as safe as it is beneficial.
The FMF is focused on promoting AI safety through research, knowledge-sharing, and collaboration. Participating in AISIC will allow us to both learn from and engage leaders across the space to ensure that cutting-edge AI systems are safe and aligned with human values. We look forward to being a part of this effort.
