ISO/IEC 5338:2023 Information technology - Artificial intelligence AI system life cycle processes
Technical Committee: ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 42 Artificial intelligence

“This document defines a set of processes and associated concepts for describing the life cycle of AI systems based on machine learning and heuristic systems. It is based on ISO/IEC/IEEE 15288 and ISO/IEC/IEEE 12207 with modifications and additions of AI-specific processes from ISO/IEC 22989 and ISO/IEC 23053. This document provides processes that support the definition, control, management, execution and improvement of the AI system in its life cycle stages. These processes can also be used within an organization or a project when developing or acquiring AI systems. When an element of an AI system is traditional software or a traditional system, the software life cycle processes in ISO/IEC/IEEE 12207 and the system life cycle processes in ISO/IEC/IEEE 15288 can be used to implement that element.”

ISO/IEC 42001:2023 Information technology - Artificial intelligence Management system
Technical Committee: ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 42 Artificial intelligence
“ISO/IEC 42001 is an international standard that specifies requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an Artificial Intelligence Management System (AIMS) within organizations. It is designed for entities providing or utilizing AI-based products or services, ensuring responsible development and use of AI systems. […] ISO/IEC 42001 is the world’s first AI management system standard, providing valuable guidance for this rapidly changing field of technology. It addresses the unique challenges AI poses, such as ethical considerations, transparency, and continuous learning. For organizations, it sets out a structured way to manage risks and opportunities associated with AI, balancing innovation with governance.)”

W3C Advisory Committee Elects Technical Architecture Group
“The W3C Advisory Committee has elected the following people to fill five seats on the W3C Technical Architecture Group (TAG) starting 1 February 2024: Daniel Appelquist, Matthew Atkinson, Peter Linss, Dapeng Liu and Martin Thomson. They join TAG Emeritus Chair Tim Berners-Lee and continuing participants, Hadley Beeman, Amy Guy, Theresa O'Connor and Lea Verou. Yves Lafon continues as staff contact. […] The TAG is a special group within the W3C, chartered under the W3C Process Document, with stewardship of the Web architecture. The mission of the TAG is to build consensus around principles of Web architecture and to interpret and clarify these principles when necessary, to resolve issues involving general Web architecture brought to the TAG, and to help coordinate cross-technology architecture developments inside and outside W3C. The Members of the TAG participate as individual contributors, not as representatives of their organizations. TAG participants use their best judgment to find the best solutions for the Web, not just for any particular network, technology, vendor, or user. Learn more about the TAG.”
