    • US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
    • US Department of Homeland Security (DHS)
    • US Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA)
    • Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA)
    • Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST, ImPACT-TRC)
  • Systems that can be Trusted to Make Decisions through our work on Explainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI).
    • US Naval Research Laboratory (NRL)
    • US Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR)
    • Australian Defence Science and Technology Group (DST Group)
    • The University of New South Wales (UNSW)
