At its 2021 Conference, the Prognostics and Health Management Society held a panel on Qualifying Data and Data Use Assuring Data Capability for Intelligent Systems and Beyond, organized and chaired by NIST’s Michael Sharp and moderated by NIST's Vincenzo Ferrero. The panel sought to identify concerns regarding data use for artificial intelligence. While data may seem correct, it must be functionally useable for AI. This requires qualifying data for given applications, which include:
Identifying these concerns helps build consensus regarding how to address them. It also helps pursue mechanisms for measuring the quality of the collection, use, and return on investment.
