AI4IA : Artificial Intelligence for Intelligence Analysis
IC CAE Colloquium on AI4IA : Artificial Intelligence for Intelligence Analysis - Dr. Erik Blasch

Erik Blasch, PhD, MBA
AI/ML Standards for Autonomy in Use

Abstract: Current trends in autonomy, machine learning (ML), and sensor data fusion (SDF) require systems engineering. Systems engineering coordinates instrumentation, modeling, and computational architectures for decision support and domain awareness. Examples are autonomy in motion (AIM) for dynamic signals assessment systems (e.g., data fusion), autonomy at rest (AAR) for static data collection systems (e.g., surveillance), and autonomy in use (AIU) for networked intelligence enterprises (e.g., smart cities). AIU requires pragmatic use of message passing and data flow architectures; contextual and theoretic modeling; and user and machine teaming for Physics-based and Human-derived Information Fusion (PHIF) systems. Recently, ML has been proposed as the solution to many problems which inherently includes multi-modal data. To meet the objective, there is a need for common standards and evaluation methods for product deployment. The Multisource AI Scorecard Table (MAST) assists in the systems engineering of data analytics (AI/ML/SDF). The discussion will highlight MAST in relation to ML/SDF scalable and trustable solutions requiring computational efficiency, decision making reliability, experience expansion, and security robustness; while highlighting challenges for multi-domain operations, human-machine teaming, and accountable deployment strategies.
