JSI Selected to Participate in U.S. Department of Commerce Consortium Dedicated to AI Safety


JSI is one of more than 200 leading AI stakeholders to help advance the development and deployment of safe, trustworthy AI under new U.S. Government safety institute

JSI, a pioneer in digital intelligence solutions for law enforcement and national security, is pleased to join more than 200 foremost U.S. artificial intelligence (AI) stakeholders participating in a Department of Commerce initiative to support the development and deployment of trustworthy and safe AI. Established by the Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the U.S. AI Safety Institute Consortium (AISIC) brings together AI creators and users, academics, government and industry researchers, and civil society organizations to meet this mission.

JSI’s 4Sight is a lawful collection and analytics platform purpose-built in collaboration with the law enforcement and intelligence community. 4Sight leverages AI to help ingest, connect, and enrich multi-source data for mission-critical operations, enabling analysts and investigators to surface insights sooner. JSI is committed to the use of secure and compliant AI in its product development and supports the goals of the AISIC.

“With criminality becoming increasingly digital and sophisticated, it is crucial for law enforcement, intelligence, and security organizations to have access to safe and reliable AI solutions,” said Josh McKenna, President of JSI USA. “By contributing to the NIST consortium, JSI will help ensure AI is used responsibly by our trusted institutions, ultimately keeping our communities safer and more secure.”

The consortium includes more than 200 member companies and organizations that are on the frontlines of developing and using AI systems, as well as the civil society and academic teams that are building the foundational understanding of how AI can and will transform our society. These entities represent the United States’ largest companies and its innovative startups; creators of the world’s most advanced AI systems and hardware; key members of civil society and the academic community; and representatives of professions with deep engagement in AI’s use today. The consortium also includes state and local governments, as well as non-profits. The consortium will also work with organizations from like-minded nations that have a key role to play in setting interoperable and effective safety around the world.

“The U.S. government has a significant role to play in setting the standards and developing the tools we need to mitigate the risks and harness the immense potential of artificial intelligence. President Biden directed us to pull every lever to accomplish two key goals: set safety standards and protect our innovation ecosystem. That’s precisely what the U.S. AI Safety Institute Consortium is set up to help us do,” said Secretary of Commerce, Gina Raimondo.
