Engaging with the AI Executive Order

We provide formal input to agencies across the US federal government, including technical and policy expertise on a wide range of issues such as export controls, hardware governance, standard setting, procurement, and more.

On October 30, 2023, the White House released the 'Executive Order on the Safe, Secure, and Trustworthy Development and Use of Artificial Intelligence'. The AI Executive Order called for "the highest urgency on governing the development and use of AI safely and responsibly", tasking agencies and departments across the Executive branch as part of a coordinated, Federal Government-wide approach.

To contribute to this effort, the Future of Life Institute has provided formal input through responses to an array of Requests for Comments and Information to agencies across the federal government. We have provided technical and policy expertise on a wide range of issues including export controls, hardware governance, standard setting, procurement, protection of critical infrastructure, international development and risk management.

You can find our formal responses to each Request below. We will continue to engage with the Executive branch through these and other means to facilitate effective government action to ensure the safe, secure and responsible development of artificial intelligence.
