AI navigation to aid in Naval command decision makingNews
September 25, 2019
MALIBU, Calif. HRL Laboratories, LLC has launched the Causal Adaptive Decision Aid (CADA) project, which will distill massive data from multiple intelligence sources into a ranked list of recommended courses of action for Naval command center personnel.
Computer scientists from HRL’s Information and Systems Sciences Laboratory are working with the Office of Naval Research to develop the new software system that will provide Navy personnel with explainable recommendations to aid command decision-making.
According to HRL, the CADA system will advance interpretable machine learning by revealing critical regions of intelligence data used to produce its lists of recommendations. CADA’s transparency is intended to enable users to assess the validity of computations used on the data layers and the measures of the system’s computed confidence in each recommended course of action.
CADA is expected to be used by Naval Logistics Readiness Centers, but can also be applied as a decision-making aid in other fields such as operations research or predictive maintenance.
