Across operational environments there is a growing urgency to empower decision-makers and analysts to capitalize on a range of rapidly-evolving “analytics” capabilities, including decision aids, algorithms, automation, autonomy, and AI/ML. The 711 HPW seeks to exert intellectual leadership in the development of AI systems that are learnable, useable, useful, and understandable. The objective of this effort is to develop a suite of theory-driven tools that will increase the likelihood that these technologies will not only be fielded but will measurably enhance warfighter performance. The XAI assessment framework is intended to be releasable to the data analytics research and development community to aid in the creation of mission-effective AI/ML systems across the DoD.
