An Introduction to Machine Learning (ML) Safety

White Paper

The Department of Defense and many federal civilian agencies are already investing in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML). However, there are risks in using AI and ML, such as bias and unintended consequences that come with using models that learn from data and are difficult to inspect. Such risks, if left unaddressed, can result in errors that can negatively affect mission performance.

This white paper describes the benefits of ML, as well as the most common risks for government organizations.
