Army posts RFI for protecting data sets in AI/ML applications
On May 5, the U.S. Army posted a request for information (RFI) for Testing, Validating, and Protecting Army Data Sets for Use in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) Applications. Responses are due by 5:00 p.m. Eastern on May 12.
Pursuant to the Federal Advisory Committee Act of 1972 (5 U.S.C., Appendix, as amended), the Sunshine in Government Act of 1976 (U.S.C. 552b, as amended) and 41 Code of the Federal Regulations (CFR 102-3.140 through 160) the Department of the Army requests industry information on products, science and technology (S&T) research, operational concepts, and mission support innovations to support the Army in evaluating its current state of AI data set protection and testing and in developing recommendations for future consideration
The Army is dedicated to advancing and incorporating cutting-edge technology to enhance military capabilities and to streamline operations in battlefield applications. A crucial aspect of this integration will be the deployment of AI/ML technologies.
In support of that effort, the ASB is conducting a study titled, “Testing, Validating, and Protecting Army Data Sets for Use in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) Applications.” To complete its analyses and explore as many viable sources of data as possible, the ASB is soliciting information from organizations external to the Army, including industry (traditional defense contractors as well as and non-traditional and/or small businesses), Government laboratories, Federally Funded Research and Development Contractors (FFRDCs), and academia. Based on information submitted in response to this request, the Board may conduct additional market research.
Organizations are invited to submit information on products or technologies to support on the protection, testing and validation of Army data sets for use in AI/ML. Lines of inquiry fall into two broad areas:
First, the study team seeks details on methodologies and techniques that should be used for data set protection and security. Second, the Board seeks information on testing AI-enhanced systems in battlefield applications (autonomous operations, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) and other military missions).
