Researchers eye competency-awareness and trusted computing in machine learning to link humans and machines
ARLINGTON, Va. – How does a person know if he’s smart enough to do the job … if he has a skill set that’s adequate for the task at hand? It sounds simple, but it’s a fundamental ability necessary for trust and team building.
Now apply the same question to artificial intelligence (AI) technology and machine learning? How does a machine know if it’s smart enough to do the job? That’s exactly what U.S. military researchers are aiming at in the Competency-Aware Machine Learning (CAML) project.
Officials of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in Arlington, Va., issued a broad agency announcement on Tuesday for the CAML project, which focuses on competency-awareness machine learning, where an autonomous system can self-assess its task competency and strategy, and express both in a human-understandable form. ..Read More..
