DOE AI Risk Management Playbook

AI is one of today’s most influential socio-technologies, and the use and development of AI systems may seem intimidating when considering risks, especially unforeseen ones.

Developed in consultation with NIST, the DOE’s AI Risk Management Playbook (AI RMP) is an interactive reference guide that contains recommended mitigations to advance responsible and trustworthy (R&T) AI use and development. Although the AI RMP is not a binding document, it does encompass some of the most common AI risks and preventive considerations including AI equity.
