Will the White House AI Executive Order deliver on its promises?
2 November 2023
On October 30, 2023, President Biden signed an Executive Order on the Safe, Secure, and Trustworthy Development and Use of Artificial Intelligence. The Executive Order (EO) features eight guiding principles--new standards for AI safety; protecting Americans' privacy; advancing equity and civil rights; standing up for consumers, patients, and students; supporting workers; promoting innovation and competition; advancing American leadership abroad; and ensuring responsible and effective government use of AI--and charges federal agencies with both drafting guidelines for responsible AI and taking steps to regulate and review its applications. The EO also builds on prior AI guidance, such as the White House's national Blueprint for an AI Bill of Rights and the National Institute for Standards in Technology (NIST) AI Risk Management Framework, and takes cues from existing and future global regulation, such as the European Union's AI Act.
