NIST - Information Technology

  1. Get to know NIST’s bug killer, versed in multiple languages of the digital world and ready to tackle programming’s pests. In 1971, Paul E. Black took a class that changed his life. As a teenager growing up in the slide rule’s heyday (before electronic calculators), he happened upon a subject few people studied at the time: computer programming. He loved the idea that you could put a snapshot of your thoughts into a machine and get it to do things — and he’s been into it ever since. Paul spent several years of his early career at a company where he wrote programs that let engineers design
  2. U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo today announced that the Commerce Department has established a high-level committee to advise the president and other federal agencies on a range of issues related to artificial intelligence (AI). Working with the National AI Initiative Office (NAIIO) in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), the department is now seeking to recruit top-level candidates to serve on the committee. A formal notice describing the National Artificial Intelligence Advisory Committee (NAIAC) and the call for nominations for the committee and its
  3. Workshop #1 This virtual Artificial Intelligence (AI) Risk Management Framework (RMF) workshop will support NIST’s goal of fostering an open, transparent, and collaborative process as NIST develops a Framework to manage risks to individuals, organizations, and society associated with AI. Participate in this event with AI experts and stakeholders across sectors as we share feedback received during our earlier Request for Information (RFI). Registrants will also have the opportunity to ask questions and hear directly from NIST about future plans for the AI RMF and explore and contribute to
  4. Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have developed a modeling technique that can save time and money in estimating how to configure wireless communications systems to share the same transmission frequencies. The NIST model reduces the number of measurements needed to estimate reliable configurations by about 33%. The model is an outcome of NIST’s use of statistics to develop new tools that can meet complex challenges in enabling wireless systems to share limited spectrum. The new model was developed for two-way coexistence tests, which evaluate two wireless
  5. To accelerate research and development (R&D) for public safety user interfaces (UIs), NIST’s Public Safety Communications Research (PSCR) Division has awarded $9.7 million to eight recipients for the Public Safety Innovation Accelerator Program (PSIAP) Augmented Reality (AR) funding opportunity. AR allows users to interact with technologies in unique ways and has broad potential to support first responders, including reducing cognitive overload, enhancing navigation, and supplementing real-life training solutions. However, widespread adoption of this new technology for first responders has its
  6. When it comes to passwords, the challenges are endless. We must create multiple passwords to manage our many online accounts, from email to shopping sites and social media profiles. We have to safely keep track of these many passwords and ensure they’re strong enough to reduce the risk of cyberattacks. All of these reasons emphasize why education and training are so important for strengthening passwords and protecting personal accounts. The problem isn’t limited to just adults. Children may seem more technologically savvy because they’ve grown up in the digital space, but they still face the
  7. NIST will exhibit at the 2021 Grace Hopper Conference To learn how you can work with NIST, please see our opportunities.

  8. As a key step in its effort to manage the risks posed by artificial intelligence (AI), the U.S. Department of Commerce's National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is requesting input from the public that will inform the development of AI risk management guidance. Responses to the Request for Information (RFI), which appears today in the Federal Register, will help NIST draft an Artificial Intelligence Risk Management Framework (AI RMF), a guidance document for voluntary use intended to help technology developers, users and evaluators improve the trustworthiness of AI systems. (A
  9. President Biden on July 28, 2021, signed a new National Security Memorandum, “Improving Cybersecurity for Critical Infrastructure Control Systems which directs the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to work with the Department of Commerce (DOC) in developing cybersecurity performance goals that will drive adoption of effective practices and controls. NIST will play a role in that collaboration. NIST conducts research and provides resources to improve the cybersecurity of Operational Technology. Among activities that will contribute to implementing the National Security Memorandum, NIST is
  10. NIST is seeking suggestions and feedback on challenges and practical approaches to initiating cybersecurity labeling efforts for Internet of Things (IoT) devices and consumer software. The information received will help NIST carry out one of its multiple assignments included in a May 12, 2021 Executive Order (EO) on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity. We need your help! You are invited to respond to a call for papers, comment on a forthcoming draft white paper, and participate in our workshop on September 14-15, 2021. More about the call for papers: NIST is now requesting one- to two-page
