Robust Intelligence Announces Participation in Department of Commerce Consortium Dedicated to AI Safety

Robust Intelligence joins 200+ leading AI stakeholders to help advance the development and deployment of safe, trustworthy AI under new U.S. Government safety institute

Today, Robust Intelligence 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.

“The safety and security of AI is a global concern. Solving this challenge will require the widespread adoption of new tactics designed specifically for this technology,” remarked Hyrum Anderson, CTO at Robust Intelligence. “Robust Intelligence is proud to contribute our collective expertise to advance industry standards that will inform the development and use of safe and trustworthy AI, thereby enabling AI to reach its full potential.”

“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 Gina Raimondo, U.S. Secretary of Commerce. “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.

Robust Intelligence’s mission is to enable every organization on the planet to adopt AI securely. In addition to developing an end-to-end AI security platform, we regularly contribute to industry resources and standards to advance the safe use of AI. Robust Intelligence is a founding member of MITRE ATLAS and partnered to create open-source our AI Risk Database, co-authored NIST’s Adversarial Machine Learning Taxonomy, regularly contributes to OWASP threat landscapes including the Top 10 for LLM Applications, and more.
We’re proud to participate in the U.S. AI Safety Institute Consortium to promote the development and deployment of safe, trustworthy artificial intelligence.
