Humans (DOD personnel) are responsible for the development, deployment, and use of AI


Unintended bias in AI capabilities must be minimized


Humans (relevant personnel) will possess an appropriate understanding of the technology, development processes, and operational methods applicable to AI. AI must have auditable methodologies, data sources, and design procedures and documentation


AI must have well-defined uses. The safety, security, and effectiveness of AI will be subject to testing across their entire life cycle


AI will possess the ability to detect and avoid unintended consequences. Humans will have the tools to deactivate AI that demonstrates unintended behavior
