ISIS partners with ORNL to develop science-based AI assurance methods

Vanderbilt University's Institute for Software Integrated Systems and Oak Ridge National Laboratory announced a partnership at the Tennessee Valley Corridor 2024 National Summit in Nashville. This collaboration aims to develop science-based AI assurance methods to ensure the reliability of AI-enabled systems in national security missions. Vanderbilt's expertise in learning-enabled cyber-physical systems, coupled with ORNL's capabilities in high-performance computing and AI security, will drive this initiative. The partnership will initially focus on supporting the U.S. Air Force‚Äôs use of autonomous vehicles, such as the AI-enabled X-62A VISTA, ensuring these systems meet stringent Department of Defense requirements. 

During the Tennessee Valley Corridor 2024 National Summit in Nashville, Vanderbilt University and Oak Ridge National Laboratory announced a new partnership to build on complementary research and development capabilities and create science-based AI assurance methods to:

  • Ensure that AI-enabled systems deployed for national security missions are able to function in the most challenging and contested environments. 
  • Test and evaluate the resilience and performance of AI tools at large scale in mission-relevant environments.
  • Provide decision-makers with the confidence to rapidly adopt and deploy AI-enabled technologies to maintain U.S. competitive advantage.
