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.

FY22 Program Plan and FY23 Forecast


The Department of Energy (DOE) has the mission of ensuring America’s security and prosperity by addressing its energy, environmental and nuclear challenges through transformative science and technology solutions. Artificial Intelligence (AI) (which encompasses machine learning (ML) for this program plan) is poised to be the most transformative technology of this, or perhaps any, generation in American history. Therefore, DOE must exercise its world-leading science and technology enterprise to propel the Department into a leadership position, capturing this opportunity for the American People.
