“Generative AI is going to revolutionize industries and Leidos is at the forefront of putting this powerful technology into action,” said Jim Carlini, Leidos Chief Technology Officer. “Years ago, we recognized the potential of the LLMs that power today’s Generative AI breakthroughs and began the work to unlock it. Today, we are thrilled to announce our successful deployment of LLMs in our Health business.”

The Leidos approach to Trusted AI brings decisive benefits.
