with his talk on : « Approaches and lessons for trustworthy, human-center AI »
Recent successes and shortcomings of AI implementations have highlighted the importance of understanding how to design and interpret trustworthiness. AI Assurance is becoming a popular objective for some stakeholders, however, assurance and trustworthiness are context sensitive concepts that rely not only on software performance and cybersecurity, but also on human-centered design. This talk summarizes lessons from the stand up of the Defense Department’s Joint AI Center and offers recommendations for resilient AI engineering. It also introduces a new program in the Commonwealth Cyber Initiative to create an “AI Commons” where technologists and non-technologists can collaborate to develop and demonstrate trustworthy AI.
