An overlooked topic for AI research: trust

There are a startlingly small number of Department of Defense research programs dedicated to studying how to improve trust in AI-enabled machines, given the military’s growing interest in them, according to the research from the Center for Security and Emerging Technology at Georgetown University. The problem is that while the DOD focuses on building technology that can pair up with humans — such as autonomous vehicles or algorithms that assist in decision making — it’s not gaining insight into how that pairing will actually work, the report says. Jackson Barnett talked to CSET about its findings.

FAA drone-detection program ready for next step

The Federal Aviation Administration wants to test drone detection and mitigation technology at four airports prior to permitting its broader use, according to a new solicitation. The agency plans to try out at least 10 technologies and systems for dealing with errant and hostile unmanned aircraft systems. The process will last for up to 24 months beginning in early 2021. It represents the arrival of the new Airport UAS Detection and Mitigation Program, fulfilling a requirement of the 2018 FAA Reauthorization Act that the agency work with the Pentagon and Department of Homeland Security to ensure the technology doesn’t interfere with airport operations. Dave Nyczepir has the RFI.

The NSA's SkillTree is public

The National Security Agency has created a new platform called SkillTree that is designed to teach the best ways to use complex applications and implement best practices in software development. It’s a tool and not a specific curriculum. The spy agency developed it in-house but posted it to the Microsoft-owned public code repository GitHub with ways for the broader development community to collaborate on its code and fix bugs. Jackson explains the project.

NSA and DOD expand outreach to HBCUs

The NSA also made another announcement about education last week: The agency and the Department of Defense said they want access to cybersecurity education, mentoring and paid internships for students at historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs). The workforce development program will connect students at eligible educational institutions with internships and mentorship through the Pentagon’s Office of Small Business Programs, officials said.
