The US administration has put forward a “responsible” AI development plan to mitigate AI risks to society and national security. White House is now revealing more details about its plan and how it can help keep people safe and uphold democratic values.

The Blueprint AI Bill of Rights, a risk management framework for AI, and investing $140 million into launching seven new National AI Research Institutes are a part of Biden administration initiatives to regulate and develop AI in the United States. To continue these efforts, the White House announces an update to the National AI R&D Strategic Plan.


The National AI R&D Strategic Plan has not been updated since 2019 and Trump’s administration. The plan provides federal governments with insights on developing and investing in AI. It also serves as a guideline for developing a responsible AI that doesn’t harm public rights and protects democratic values.

The US administration updated the responsible AI development plan

The plan previously had eight main cores, but the White House updated it by adding “a principled and coordinated approach to international collaboration in AI research.”

The Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) says, “The federal government plays a critical role in ensuring that technologies like AI are developed responsibly and to serve the American people.” OSTP also pointed to federal investments as a facilitator for many AI developments in recent years.

While the White House has already opened a request for comment (RFC) to gather the public’s opinion on AI regulations, the OSTP is also asking “interested individuals and organizations” to share their input on the updated plan and AI development. The questionnaire includes 30 questions, and you can submit your comments through the Federal eRulemaking Portal by 5:00 pm ET on July 7, 2023.

Besides the White House and OSTP, the Department of Education is also worried about AI’s impacts on schools and students. The department has released a report that sheds light on the effects of Chatbots, like ChatGPT, on Learning, Teaching, Assessment, and Research.

Of course, the DoE has an optimistic approach toward AI, arguing that it can “enable new forms of interaction between educators and students, help educators address variability in learning, increase feedback loops, and support educators.”

The European Commission also hopes to collaborate with the US administration and companies like Google to establish minimum standards for AI. The EC industry chief, Thierry Breton, and EU Commissioner for Competition, Margrethe Vestager, have recently met with Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai to discuss the matter.
