TCG Named to Consortium Dedicated to AI Safety

TCG will join more than 200 of the nation’s leading artificial intelligence (AI) stakeholders to participate in a Department of Commerce initiative to support the development and deployment of trustworthy and safe AI. Established by the Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) on February 8, 2024, the U.S. AI Safety Institute Consortium (AISIC) brings together AI creators and users, academics, government and industry researchers, and civil society organizations to meet this mission.

“Improvements in large language models and recent advancements in cooperative agents have created opportunities to accelerate government operations and benefit citizens,” said TCG’s Chief Technology Officer, Robert Buccigrossi. “However, we need to use these exciting new capabilities safely and ethically. We’re thrilled to be part of the consortium and view this as integral to TCG’s mission to develop IT systems for an efficient, transparent, and ethical government.”

The consortium includes more than 200 member companies and organizations that are on the frontlines of developing and using AI systems, as well as the civil society and academic teams that are building the foundational understanding of how AI can and will transform our society. 

These entities represent the nation’s largest companies and its innovative startups; creators of the world’s most advanced AI systems and hardware; key members of civil society and the academic community; and representatives of professions with deep engagement in AI’s use today. The consortium also includes state and local governments, as well as non-profits. The consortium will also work with organizations from like-minded nations that have a key role to play in setting interoperable and effective safety around the world.
