BABL AI, a leading provider of AI auditing and algorithmic governance solutions, is proud to announce its participation in the US AI Safety Institute Consortium (AISIC), a groundbreaking initiative aimed at advancing the development of safe and trustworthy AI systems.


Established by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the AISIC represents the largest gathering of AI developers, users, researchers, and affected groups globally. It brings together Fortune 500 companies, academic teams, non-profit organizations, and U.S. Government agencies, all dedicated to fostering the research and development necessary for the creation of safe and reliable AI.


As a critical component of the NIST-led U.S. Artificial Intelligence Safety Institute, the Consortium will collaborate closely with stakeholders to integrate cutting-edge research and testing into the broader AI safety community. Its mission is to ensure that AI systems align with societal norms and values while prioritizing public safety.


“The launch of the AISIC is a significant moment in the development of robust and evidence-driven practices for managing AI risk, and we are proud that BABL AI can contribute to this endeavor,” said Dr. Shea Brown, CEO at BABL AI.


Brown emphasized, “As an organization that audits AI and algorithmic systems for bias, safety, ethical risk, and effective governance, we believe that the Institute’s task of developing a measurement science for evaluating these systems aligns with our mission to promote human flourishing in the age of AI.”

“The U.S. government has a significant role to play in setting the standards and developing the tools we need to mitigate the risks and harness the immense potential of artificial intelligence. President Biden directed us to pull every lever to accomplish two key goals: set safety standards and protect our innovation ecosystem. That’s precisely what the U.S. AI Safety Institute Consortium is set up to help us do,” said Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo.


BABL AI joins over 200 leading AI stakeholders in participating in the AISIC initiative. This diverse group includes companies, academic institutions, civil society organizations, and government agencies committed to advancing the development and deployment of trustworthy AI.

About NIST:

The NIST was founded in 1901 and is now part of the U.S. Department of Commerce. NIST is one of the nation’s oldest physical science laboratories. Congress established the agency to remove a major challenge to U.S. industrial competitiveness at the time. Today, NIST measurements support the smallest of technologies to the largest and most complex of human-made creations — from nanoscale devices so tiny that tens of thousands can fit on the end of a single human hair up to earthquake-resistant skyscrapers and global communication networks.
