Senator John Hickenlooper of Colorado is set to introduce a bill that would standardize the testing of AI systems for fairness and safety. The legislation, known as the "Validation and Evaluation for Trustworthy Artificial Intelligence Act," would require the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to lead the effort in drafting new voluntary guidance for AI evaluations. The bill aims to ensure that AI systems can be validated for efficacy and trustworthiness. It would also create an "Artificial Intelligence Assurance Qualifications Advisory Committee" to help execute the guidance. The proposed bill builds on existing federal efforts to cultivate trust in automated and machine learning technologies during their deployment. The legislation is seen as a proactive step towards building trust and accountability in AI systems.
