ARLINGTON, Va., 11 Aug. 2016. Humans and machines have been able to work together since the Industrial Revolution, but errors through misunderstandings are common. To help with this, U.S. military researchers are launching an artificial intelligence and machine learning program to help humans and machines get along better than ever before.

Officials of the U.S Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in Arlington, Va., released a solicitation on Wednesday (DARPA-BAA-16-53) for the Explainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI) project.

XAI centers on machine learning and human/computer interaction, and seeks to create a suite of machine learning techniques that produce explainable models that, when combined with explanation techniques, enable end users to understand, trust, and manage the emerging generation of artificial intelligence (AI) systems.
