 Calibration of Trust in AI  


The concept of trust calibration is essential for the safe and effective integration of AI systems into daily activities, industries, and critical infrastructures. Over-trust in AI can lead to complacency, where users might overlook or underestimate the need for oversight and human intervention, potentially resulting in catastrophic outcomes. Conversely, under-trust might cause hesitancy in adopting AI technologies that could significantly enhance efficiency, safety, and decision-making processes. Therefore, achieving an optimal level of trust is crucial for leveraging the full potential of AI while minimizing risks.


The sensitivity of this topic lies in its direct impact on human behavior and societal norms. Trust calibration in AI does not only concern the technical reliability of algorithms but also encompasses ethical considerations, transparency, accountability, and the alignment of AI systems with human values and expectations. These aspects are fundamental to fostering an environment where AI is used responsibly and for the benefit of humanity.


As AI systems become more complex and autonomous, the challenge of calibrating trust grows. It involves not just the initial design and deployment of AI but also its evolution over time. Continuous monitoring, feedback, and adaptation are required to ensure that trust remains appropriately calibrated as both technology and societal norms evolve.

Central Florida Tech Grove

The Central Florida Tech Grove is a hub for accelerating collaboration and innovation in defense modeling, simulation, training, and human performance.  Tech Grove is located in the Central Florida Research Park in Orlando, Florida which is the epicenter of the nation's largest cluster of government, industry, academic, and industry organizations developing and delivering training and simulation products for our nation's military. Tech Grove was established in 2020 through a Partnership Intermediary Agreement (PIA) between the Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division (NAWCTSD) and the University of Central Florida Research Foundation.  Eight other Department of Defense entities are Tech Grove members: US Army Program Executive Office for Simulation Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI), US Air Force Agency for Modeling & Simulation (AFAMS), US Marine Corps Program Manager for Training Systems (PM TRASYS), US Army Simulation & Training Technology Center (STTC), US Army Futures Command Synthetic Training Environment Cross-Functional Team (STE CFT), Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL), Defense Health Agency (DHA), and the Office of Naval Research through the NavalX Central Florida Tech Bridge.
