All About the Executive Order on Artificial Intelligence with White House OSTP

About this event

Hosts for this office hour: 

  • Wade Shen, Director of National AI Initiative Office at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) 
  • Michael Littman, Division Director (CISE/IIS) 


The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) will be holding a briefing for the artificial intelligence research community to provide an overview of the Biden administration's newly release executive order (EO) on AI and its potential to support and accelerate AI research while ensuring the safety and trustworthiness of AI systems.  In addition to a short summary of the EO's actions, there will be time set aside for interactive question and answer with the research community. 


These Office Hours are for researchers interested in learning about programs and policies in the Division of Information and Intelligent Systems (IIS) in the Computer and Information Science and Engineering Directorate (CISE) at NSF. Office Hours are designed to give current and potential investigators a window into IIS and other partners. Attendance at office hours is voluntary and designed to help investigators gain information that can help them strengthen their proposals. Sessions will be closed-captioned. This session will be recorded.  


Please note that the office hours are designed to answer questions for a broad range of researchers and not inquiries about specific proposals. If you would like to talk to about a specific proposal you are considering submitting or which was already reviewed, please email the relevant program. This will connect you with program officers with whom you can ask questions.
