NIST – Building the NIST AI Risk Management Framework: Workshop 2

Mar. 29, 2022
12:25pm – 1:25pm EST 9:25am PST5:25pm GMT

Organized by NIST

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) was founded in 1901 and is now part of the U.S. Department of Commerce. NIST is one of the nation’s oldest physical science laboratories. Congress established the agency to remove a major challenge to U.S. industrial competitiveness at the time — a second-rate measurement infrastructure that lagged behind the capabilities of the United Kingdom, Germany and others.

Event Overview

NIST recently hosted a workshop dedicated to developing the AI Risk Management Framework. The second in a series, this workshop was part of NIST’s efforts to foster an open, transparent, and collaborative process as it creates a Framework to manage risks to individuals, organizations, and society associated with AI. Building on community input to date, NIST released a first draft of the Framework in advance of the event where AI experts and stakeholders across sectors will further advance the guidance document.

On March 29, PAI’s Christine Custis shared her expertise in AI as a panelist for the AI RMF Function: Map Panel. This session delved into the first AI RMF Function on “Map” where context is established and risks related to the content are enumerated.
