Generative AI systems and large language models (LLMs), with their immense power and autonomy, have the potential to revolutionize industries and enhance lives. However, with great technological advancement comes great risk. Most generative AI tools lack a critical security layer capable of protecting sensitive information, thwarting cyberattacks, and deterring malicious behavior. Enterprises are vulnerable to these challenges given the wealth of data and intellectual property they house, as well as the lack of understanding many employees have about the inherent risks of LLMs. Likewise, consumers and governments may be influenced by evolving and new threats, such as deep fakes and the rapid spread of misinformation, which are increasing in both severity and reach due to the introduction of AI.
CalypsoAI is the leader in delivering solutions that enable safe, secure, and reliable adoption of AI across enterprises. With years of experience working with the U.S. Air Force, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and Fortune 500 companies, CalypsoAI’s trusted and field-tested AI security solutions are being deployed across organizations to provide the trust, auditability, observability, and data protection needed to facilitate the deployment of AI tools safely and securely. The company’s platform, Moderator, is relied on by organizations to prevent data loss, identify and stop malicious attacks deployed from within generative AI tools, and ensure outputs from LLMs are verified and trustworthy.
CalypsoAI’s mission is to enable the expansion of AI by securing its use. Through this partnership, CalypsoAI and the Forum will tackle pressing industry problems such as building cyber resilience in manufacturing, bridging the cyber skills gap, and improving the global cybersecurity outlook.
“The World Economic Forum is pleased to have CalypsoAI join our Global Innovator community,” says Verena Kuhn, Head of the Innovators Community, World Economic Forum. “Including new, innovative voices is essential in our work at the Forum. We look forward to CalypsoAI’s engagement in our Centre for Cybersecurity.”
“The Forum is one of the leading institutions for balancing innovation with safety and an authority on the steps needed to create trustworthy AI tools,” said Neil Serebryany, CEO and founder of CalypsoAI. “There are critical discussions that need to be had surrounding how we can protect enterprises, their employees, and their customers from the inherent risks posed by ChatGPT, Bard, and other LLMs. As a formal partner and member of the Innovator community, we’re committing to continuing that conversation and delivering the solutions required to enable scalable, trustworthy, and secure generative AI deployments.”
In alignment with the Forum, CalypsoAI has committed to helping protect Americans from AI-enabled fraud and deception by partnering with other industry organizations to establish standards and best practices. This includes contributions to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Trustworthy AI Standards, the DHS Deepfake Mitigation methods, The National Artificial Intelligence Resources Task Force, the Test and Evaluation Challenges in Artificial Intelligence-Enabled Systems report for the USAF, and the Air Force and Army Working Group.
