Artificial Intelligence

The Department of Defense's artificial intelligence hub has released a draft request for proposals for services under a blanket purchase agreement to develop or prepare datasets that are ready for use in AI applications.

The Joint Artificial Intelligence Center said Wednesday it will seek AI data readiness development support services, including project and program management, synthetic data generation and data anonymization, and enterprise information management and governance.

According to the draft RFP, the selected vendor will also help DOD components to move cloud services to the Joint Common Foundation by providing JCF libraries with datasets, machine learning models and source code and updating the catalogs of both DOD and JCF.

Optional tasks under the BPA include data ingestion, integration, architecture and preparation; dataset labeling; and automated data collection.

Interested parties may submit inquiries and comments on the draft solicitation until Jan. 15, 2021.

JAIC expects to post the final RFP in February 2021.
