Disruptive Innovations and Disruptive Assurance: Assuring Machine Learning and Autonomy

Bloomfield, R. E. ORCID: 0000-0002-2050-6151, Khlaaf, H., Conmy, P. R. & Fletcher, G. (2019). Disruptive Innovations and Disruptive Assurance: Assuring Machine Learning and Autonomy. Computer, 52(9), pp. 82-89. doi: 10.1109/mc.2019.2914775


Autonomous and machine learning-based systems are disruptive innovations and thus require a corresponding disruptive assurance strategy. We offer an overview of a framework based on claims, arguments, and evidence aimed at addressing these systems and use it to identify specific gaps, challenges, and potential solutions.
