Today, Cohere joined more than 200 of the nation's leading AI stakeholders to help advance the development and deployment of safe AI technology with the new U.S. AI Safety Institute Consortium (AISIC).
The Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is establishing AISIC to bring together AI creators and users, academics, government and industry researchers, and civil society organizations to collaborate on AI safety efforts.
The consortium Cohere is joining brings together the largest collection of AI developers, users, researchers, and affected groups in the world. Its members include Fortune 500 companies, academic teams, non-profit organizations, and other U.S. Government agencies, all focused on developing safe and trustworthy AI systems which will underpin future standards and policies.
Cohere previously signed on to the White House and Canadian AI commitments, and attended the UK AI Safety Summit. This marks another step in Cohere’s work with policymakers around the world to develop regulation that allows innovation in AI to thrive, but ensures responsible development of the technology.
Cohere will continue working with the U.S. government to ensure that AI policy reflects the unique challenges and opportunities that face the enterprise AI sector.
