U.S. Joins International Agreement on AI Guidelines

Both DHS and the UK’s National Security Center published the recommendations regarding AI development.

The United States jointly released international guidelines with 17 other countries this week for secure AI system development. The 20-page document, published by the Department of Homeland Security and the United Kingdom’s National Security Center, outlines four sections laying out recommendations to secure each step of the AI development process; design, development, deployment, and maintenance.

The 18 countries released this document as a non-binding agreement between them. U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Director Jen Easterly anticipates more formal AI policies but welcomes any development to prioritize the safety of AI systems.

“This is the first time that we have seen an affirmation that these capabilities should not just be about cool features and how quickly we can get them to market or how we can compete to drive down costs,” Director Easterly stated following the publishing of the guidelines.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Director Easterly to be guided by God as she heads the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency.
  • For Secretary Mayorkas to be discerning as he oversees the Department of Homeland Security.
  • For U.S. and allied officials as they seek consensus on the guidelines for artificial intelligence development.
