A startup that features an advisory board of former government military luminaries has released a new platform designed to evaluate the security and deployability of AI applications. Early adopters of the system are said to include the U.S. Air Force and the Department of Homeland Security.
The platform is called VESPR, from CalypsoAI, founded in 2018, with headquarters in Silicon Valley, Dublin, and an officially ‘undisclosed’ location in Virginia – terra firma for the CIA at Langley.
VESPR is a model risk management (MRM) system designed to facilitate a federally-compliant system of accreditation for deployed algorithms. It offers both a user-friendly dashboard-style GUI environment, and a CLI interface for more advanced usage.
VESPR is founded on CalypsoAI’s machine learning validation, verification and accreditation standards, and features hand-crafted adversarial machine learning libraries. It also offers automated stress-testing routines for potential deployable algorithms.
