Key Considerations for Responsible Development and Fielding of Artificial Intelligence

The “Key Considerations”  stem from the National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence’s (NSCAI) line of effort dedicated to Ethics and Responsible Artificial Intelligence (AI). The recommended considerations and practices found in this framework provided the foundation for integrating responsible AI throughout the Commission’s recommendations in its final report delivered to Congress and the Executive Branch on March 1, 2021. 

The Key Considerations include near-term recommendations and topics that agencies should give priority consideration, practices that should be implemented, policies that should be defined or updated to reflect new AI considerations, and future work that should be pursued – from R&D to international cooperation. These recommendations, which operationalize AI principles adopted by all government agencies, span 5 areas: 

  • Aligning Systems and Uses with American Values and the Rule of Law
  • Engineering Practices
  • System bachelorarbeit schreiben lassen Performance
  • Human-AI Interaction & Teaming
  • Accountability and Governance.
