CalypsoAI, the leader in independent testing and validation for AI, is proud to announce that it will be supporting the Data Readiness for Artificial Intelligence Deployment (DRAID) broad purchasing agreement by the Joint Artificial Intelligence Center (JAIC)—now the Chief Data and Artificial Intelligence Office. CalypsoAI is part of a team led by Noblis that has been selected for this agreement, which has a ceiling of $241.6 million.
CalypsoAI will leverage its expertise in AI testing and validation to work with Noblis and the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to ensure AI systems are fully tested and prepared for deployment.
This agreement marks the next evolution in CalypsoAI’s presence within the DoD’s AI efforts. In March, CalypsoAI previously announced it was on the Noblis team selected to provide AI testing services to the then-JAIC as part of a blanket purchase agreement. These agreements with government agencies show the necessity for the increased deployment of secure and trustworthy AI across the federal space.
“We are excited to work with Noblis, the DoD, and the broader U.S. government to solve their pressing AI challenges and expedite their deployments through this agreement,” said Andrew Spage, CalypsoAI Vice President of Solutions Architecture. “We have worked previously with Noblis, the JAIC, and DoD on their AI goals, and we are uniquely positioned to expand our relationship with the U.S. government and collaborate with these agencies to build trust in their AI and help ensure their data and models are mission-ready.”
The deployment of trusted and responsible AI will continue to be a focus at the DoD, with the Department releasing its “Responsible Artificial Intelligence Strategy and Implementation Pathway” report, which specifically highlights the need for reliable testing and validation processes. CalypsoAI is prepared to provide further services throughout the DoD to ensure responsible AI needs are met.
CalypsoAI’s mission is to build trust in AI through independent testing and validation. We solve one of the biggest issues facing AI: machine learning models not getting deployed into production. Through CalypsoAI’s automated testing and validation solution, decision-makers gain the performance visibility needed to confidently deploy their models into production. This ensures the success of AI strategy while drastically reducing the amount of risk, time, and money spent to manually test and validate models. CalypsoAI was founded in Silicon Valley by DARPA, NASA, and DoD veterans.
