What makes a machine learning model ‘trustworthy’?

Last year, Mind Foundry worked closely with Professor Brent Mittelstadt (of the Oxford Internet Institute) to get a deeper understanding of the law, policy, and standards in development surrounding machine learning. The output of this work was an in-depth research paper highlighting the key aspects of machine learning governance. This 4-part blog series summarises some of the key points from that paper to give a flavour of the most pressing problems in AI governance and some of the solutions...

Generative AI: The Illusion of a Shortcut

Generative AI has exploded into the public eye, with the conversation focusing on the opportunities and risks it presents. However, in the Defence sector there are specific challenges and problems that this technology is simply not suited to solve.

One doesn’t need to look far to find an article or opinion about Generative AI. Open AI’s public release of Chat GPT in November 2022, and the update to GPT-4 last month, introduced the wider public to this groundbreaking new technology....

Explaining AI Explainability

There’s been a lot of talk about the development of large language models (LLMs) recently, with the loudest voices split between those who think it poses a significant risk to humanity, to those who believe it could be the crowning achievement of all humankind. Between those two extremes are numerous reasons for optimism and many valid concerns about AI safety and how to use LLMs responsibly across many different sectors. Much of this hinges on ‘transparency’, ‘interpretability’, and...

AI for Defence: More than just an innovation opportunity

Artificial Intelligence is already being used to solve problems in the Defence sector. But if AI is only seen as an opportunity to practice innovation, then the development of critical applications won’t progress fast enough.

The Defence data problem

The Defence industry faces a multitude of problems that require solving, many of which are clearly identifiable and well-documented. Some are equally prevalent but are poorly articulated and insufficiently understood. However, there is one common...

How Mind Foundry’s Goals Framework Led to Outstanding Achievements

Change is hard. We're creatures of habit by nature, and despite our best efforts, we often struggle to avoid repeating entrenched behaviours that take up much of our time and energy. It’s altogether too easy to find yourself coasting along the same path with no signs of improvement on the horizon. However, it doesn’t have to be this way. Setting clearly defined goals, ones with simple metrics to measure completion and success, is one of the most effective ways to break the cycle and set...
