Congratulations to DIEManalytics - winner of the TD-Info 2019 Innovation Award
DIEManalytics were presented with their TD-Info 2019 Innovation Award at the Defence Information 2019 event (DI'19). They, and other finalists, had successfully responded to a Challenge set by the MOD: 'Explainable Machine Learning in the context of Defence'.

Typically 'black box' type systems do not provide explanations to the solutions resulting from algorithms working on data sets. The DIEM entry included a maritime Case Study where Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (MI) led to 3 types of explanation: Explicit, Implicit and Relative. Human users found having these helped in their decision-making processes.
TD-Info are grateful to the judges: Nigel Whitehead (BAE Systems CTO & Chair TD-Info), Col Eddie Corrigan (MOD Future Concepts, Defence Logistics) and Phil Wright (Innovation, MOD ISS).
The judging criteria were: Genuine Innovation, Uniqueness in the Market, Maturity of the Solution and Relevance to the Challenge.
We will publish information about the other 2019 Innovation Award finalists in due course.
