Amazon joins the US AI Safety Institute to promote responsible AI
Today, we are pleased to announce that Amazon has joined the… American AI Safety Institute Consortiumestablished by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (Nest), as part of our efforts to strengthen government and industry cooperation to advance safe and secure artificial intelligence.
Amazon is collaborating with NIST in the AI Safety Institute Consortium to create a new metrology that will enable the identification of proven, scalable, and interoperable measurements and methodologies to advance the development and responsible use of trustworthy AI. NIST does not evaluate products commercial under this consortium and does not endorse any product or service used. He learns more About this consortium.
Amazon will also contribute $5 million in computing credits to the Institute to enable the development of tools and methodologies that organizations can use to assess the health of their underlying models. We are particularly interested in developing evaluation methodologies for very large parameter models and improving pre-deployment testing by focusing on domain-specific risks. Together with important ISO standards and contributions from other AI institutes, this work will continue to establish a reliable and interoperable foundation for the development and deployment of responsible AI.
It was the institute It was announced by Vice President Kamala Harris during the Global AI Safety Summit In the UK, which brings together political and business leaders from around the world and builds on Executive order President Biden signed it on October 30. Earlier this year, Amazon backed the agreement White House Voluntary Commitments on Artificial Intelligence. These commitments are built on forward-looking, flexible and sustainable best practices that can evolve with AI developments, while setting ambitious and tangible goals to manage potential risks.
We recognize that the unique challenges posed by generative AI will require continued collaboration, and we look forward to working with NIST and other members of the consortium to improve the safety and security of generative AI. Our participation in this institute is one of many steps we are taking to invest in its future Responsible AI And help inform international standards for the benefit of our clients, as well as the communities in which we live and work.
