Ottawa, ON Dec. 14, 2022 — In its pursuit to build trust through transparency and accountability, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) has awarded NuEnergy.ai a contract to continue testing their Machine Trust Platform (MTP) for a second consecutive year.
In this engagement, the RCMP will test the MTP’s ability to support thorough and timely law enforcement assessments of AI-based technologies. This contract is a part of the Innovative Solutions Canada (ISC) program’s Research & Development (R&D) innovation testing stream under which NuEnergy.ai will continue to pilot its Machine Trust Platform (MTP) for the next year.
This is NuEnergy.ai’s fourth large-scale contract with the Government of Canada, including engagements with Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED) and Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSCP) on AI governance projects.
Paul Boudreau, Executive Director, Technical Operations for the RCMP said, “The RCMP recognizes that public trust is critical to our policing operations, including our ability to adopt the most modern crime-fighting technologies that enable us to continue to deliver against our mandate to keep Canadians safe. Ethical governance of our advanced technologies, including AI, is important to building this trust. We are pleased to continue to work with AI Governance leaders like NuEnergy.ai and expand our knowledge of their Machine Trust Platform and its potential to support our National Technology Onboarding Program.”
“This is a significant milestone for NuEnergy.ai and a testament to the fact that AI Governance is critical to build Public Trust in law enforcement. Leveraging our Machine Trust Platform is helping policing agencies adopt advanced technologies and AI in an ethical and risk-managed manner,” adds Niraj Bhargava, NuEnergy’s co-founder and CEO.
The NuEnergy MTP software is designed to support the ethical and transparent governance and measurement of artificial intelligence (AI) deployments. The MTP is a Canadian tech innovation that gives organizations configurable one-stop access to qualified, globally-sourced AI governance measurements and assessments.
“We are pleased to be expanding our partnership with the Government of Canada and expanding to support law enforcement agencies globally, as this sector expands its approach to governance and can leverage the MTP to deploy guardrails and build trust in AI machines.” said Bhargava. He adds, “NuEnergy’s MTP is being continuously enhanced based on feedback from our current customers and their wide variety of AI Use Cases.”
