Aaron Burciaga, vice president of artificial intelligence at ECS, said the government requires more understandable artificial intelligence as it increasingly adopts the use of machine learning to drive data-centric operations.
Several agencies including the Department of Defense’s Joint AI Center have commenced a number of efforts that speed up the government’s AI and ML implementation, according to a blog post Burciaga co-authored with Mitchell Sipus, director of product at CalypsoAI.
The said efforts include JAIC’s use of data science in environmental studies and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency’s competitions on edge computing, a technology that allows warfighters to access information at the edge of the battlefield.
The increased use of AI raises the requirement for algorithms that are more understandable to users. The authors said addressing the mentioned need could lead to more trustworthy AI.
“The adoption of data science by the federal government demands a greater consideration of the human experience within AI modeling,” the piece reads.
ECS offers AI products designed adapt to the needs of various users and stakeholders.
