By: Dante A. Stella and Fady Saleh, Dykema

On October 30, 2023, President Biden signed an Executive Order on the Safe, Secure, and Trustworthy Development and Use of Artificial Intelligence (the “Order”). The Order is the most comprehensive federal policy on AI to date and covers a wide range of topics. It sets new standards for AI safety and security, addresses how AI developments could impact individuals’ privacy and civil rights, discusses how the U.S. can continue to be a leader in AI innovation and competition, and much more. This Order closely follows the July 21, 2023, announcement by the Biden administration that seven major AI companies, Amazon, Anthropic, Google, Inflection, Meta, Microsoft, and Open AI, voluntarily agreed with the administration to place more guardrails around the development and deployment of AI.
