    Talk Title: Artificial Intelligence/ Machine Learning System Safety Seminar

    Abstract: Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning is with us today. It is increasing exponentially throughout the systems that serve our national interests and infrastructure. We need to ensure that these AI systems operate within the bounds for which they are designed.

    This one day seminar pre-course presents the processes and standards by which engineers and program managers and senior leadership can ensure that Artificial Intelligence will operate as designed and intended. It introduces the full 4.5 day USC AI/ML course that will be presented in the Fall of 2021. The seminar directly addresses two of the objectives of the DoD AI Educational Strategy of 2020: to "Prioritize AI awareness for senior leaders" and to "Create a cadre of Integrated Product Teams (IPT's)."

    Aerospace and advanced weapon systems are certified for acceptance in accordance with Military Standard 882 (System Safety). This seminar utilizes Mil Std 882 as the basis for the concepts, processes and certification standards that should be used to ensure the safety and integrity of AI/ML systems. The course presents the five levels of autonomy and their corresponding levels of human interface.

    There is no fee. It is a complimentary seminar.

    A full 4.5 day course will be presented in the Fall of 2021. Date not yet specified.
