DARPA machine-learning programme includes audit software

14th July 2020 - 12:45 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


BAE Systems has reached a software delivery milestone in the Competency-Aware Machine Learning (CAML) programme for DARPA.

MindfuL software from BAE Systems (developed in collaboration with MIT) conducts what is effectively an audit of a machine-learning system, providing end users with insights to build trust in the technology.

‘The first software release of the system provides a baseline capability to detect when the system encounters a new environment for which it has not been trained,’ BAE Systems stated on 14 July.

As machine-learning and AI technology continues to advance rapidly, ‘now it’s time to ensure these systems can be integrated, utilised, and ultimately trusted in the field’, said Chris Eisenbies, product line director of the Autonomy, Control, and Estimation group at BAE Systems.

In late February, the DoD laid out ethical principles for the responsible, equitable, traceable, reliable and governable use of AI and autonomous technologies by the US armed forces.
