The British Standard Institution (BSI) has published a first of its kind international standard on safe AI management, according to the Deutsch Press Agency (DPA).
The British Press Association (PA) reported on Tuesday that the new guiding standards in the UK identify how to establish, implement, maintain, and continually improve an AI management system, with a focus on safeguards.
The British Standards Institution (BSI) has published the guidelines that offer guidance on how companies can develop and deploy AI tools responsibly internally and externally.
This comes amid an ongoing debate about the need to regulate the fast-moving technology that has become increasingly prominent last year, thanks to the public release of generative AI tools such as ChatGPT.
The UK held the first international summit related to safety in using AI in November, where leaders and major tech companies from around the world met and discussed the safe and responsible development of AI as well as potential and long-term risks that it may cause.
According to the report, these risks included using AI to create malware for cyberattacks, as well as it being an existential risk for humanity if humans lost control of this technology.
For her part, BSI CEO, Susan Taylor Martin said about the new international standard: “AI is a transformational technology. For it to be a powerful force for good, trust is critical.”
She added: “The publication of the first international AI management system standard is an important step in empowering organizations to responsibly manage the technology.”
