Pittsburgh, PA - February 9, 2024 – Preamble announced that it joined more than 200 of the nation's leading artificial intelligence (AI) stakeholders to participate in a Department of Commerce initiative to support the development and deployment of trustworthy and safe AI.
Established by the Department of Commerce's National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the U.S. AI Safety Institute Consortium (AISIC) will bring together AI creators and users, academics, government and industry researchers, and civil society organizations to meet this mission.
"We're proud to join forces with other AI leaders and experts to be a part of NIST's first AI Safety Consortium. Our expertise and innovative products in AI safety and security naturally align with this initiative's mission. Our participation in the Consortium is a natural progression of our previous involvement in the initial drafting of NIST's AI Risk Management Framework. We're excited to help contribute to shaping a safer AI future through compliance with these standards," said Jeremy McHugh, CEO and co-founder of Preamble.
"The U.S. government has a significant role to play in setting the standards and developing the tools we need to mitigate the risks and harness the immense potential of artificial intelligence. President Biden directed us to pull every lever to accomplish two key goals: set safety standards and protect our innovation ecosystem. That's precisely what the U.S. AI Safety Institute Consortium is set up to help us do," said Secretary Raimondo. "Through President Biden's landmark Executive Order, we will ensure America is at the front of the pack – and by working with this group of leaders from industry, civil society, and academia, together we can confront these challenges to develop the measurements and standards we need to maintain America's competitive edge and develop AI responsibly."
The Consortium includes more than 200 member companies and organizations that are on the frontlines of developing and using AI systems, as well as the civil society and academic teams that are building the foundational understanding of how AI can and will transform our society. These entities represent the nation's largest companies and its innovative startups; creators of the world's most advanced AI systems and hardware; key members of civil society and the academic community; and representatives of professions with deep engagement in AI's use today. The Consortium also includes state and local governments, as well as non-profits. The Consortium will also work with organizations from like-minded nations that have a key role to play in setting interoperable and effective safety around the world.
