The White House Office of Science and Technology has launched a request for information (RFI), seeking insight into developing standards around artificial intelligence (AI).

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) will coordinate the RFI and all AI-standards-related endeavors, as directed by a February executive order.

The order directed the NIST to issue a set of standards and tools that will guide the government in its adoption of the emerging technology.

NIST is seeking information on a range of issues, including technical standards and guidance needed to advance transparency and privacy around the trustworthiness of AI technology; the urgent need for AI standards; and the degree of federal agencies' current and required involvement to address the government's needs.
