EVENT 3: ACCELERATING PROGRESS

Trusted AI Challenge Series
Trusted AI at Scale is the culminating event for the Trusted AI Challenge Series Workshops. Up to $925k will be awarded to selected academic institutions that address the need for trustworthiness in dynamic, autonomous AI systems. Awardees will present their technologies during Day 3 of the event. The Challenge Series is a collaboration between The Air Force Research Laboratory, The State University of New York (SUNY), Innovare Advancement Center, NYSTEC, Griffiss Institute, and NSIN.
Inspired by the vision shared by the distinguished speakers of Event 1, informed by the technology needs of the partner organizations and drawing upon their expertise as leading researchers and engineers, the members of the Trusted AI Challenge Committee developed four challenge problems that are critical for the widespread acceptance and adoption of AI systems. The challenges were open to US based academia and small businesses, and the Air Force Research Lab international community. View Challenge Problems.
