The International Organization for Standardization (ISO)/International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) Joint Technical Committee (JTC) 1, Information Technology, recently held its plenary meeting in Delhi, India. More than 20 nations were represented at the meeting, which led to resolutions for a new Working Group (WG) on Trustworthiness and an Advisory Group on Brain-Computer Interface.
The American National Standards Institute (ANSI), the U.S. member body to ISO, plays a leading role in JTC 1, with ANSI holding the secretariat, and Mr. Phil Wennblom (U.S.) of Intel serving as chair.
"Some interesting developments [from the meeting] include a new standard for mobile drivers license(s), a new standard for privacy management, and an activity for risk management for artificial intelligence," said Mr. Wennblom, as IEC reported. "We reviewed developments in advisory groups which are studying new topics, comprising data usage and sharing, quantum computing and digital twin technology that could be used across multiple sectors."
Establishment of WG on Trustworthiness
The new JTC 1 WG 13 on trustworthiness will develop definitions and guidelines for use across JTC 1. The initial focus will be to progress the approved work item ISO/IEC TS 24462, Ontology for Trustworthiness Assessment. The next stage will develop a Standing Document that maps out which JTC 1 entities and other ISO and IEC committees are considering the topic, while documenting its relevance to their work programmes.
New Advisory Group to Support Advancements in Brain-Computer Interface
With the establishment of the JTC 1 Advisory Group 16 on Brain-computer Interface, the group will provide a description of key concepts related to brain-computer interface, and describe relevant terminology. It will also assess the current state of standardization activities relevant to brain-computer interface, and study current related technologies that are being deployed.See related ANSI news articles:
