Department of Defense to Launch Pilot Center for Evaluating AI Trustworthiness

The Department of Defense is launching the Center for Calibrated Trust Measurement and Evaluation to assist the U.S. armed forces in determining the trustworthiness of military systems powered by artificial intelligence. 

Kim Sablon, director for trusted AI and autonomy at the Office of the Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering, said the pilot center is one of the DOD’s critical steps on the “balance of roles and responsibilities between humans and machines.”

According to Sablon, there are “different levels of human autonomy interactions” to consider as the DOD starts to accelerate AI use in military applications, GovCIO Media & Research reported.

In a separate DefenseScoop report, Sablon said the new DOD center will have Carnegie Mellon University’s Software Engineering Institute as coordinator, with partnerships inside and outside DOD also involved.

She added that the center is pooling a consortium to “bring the test and evaluation community with the research and development community together”.

About $20 million in funding is being allotted to the pilot center, which is scheduled to be officially launched before Sept. 30.
