Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work has said he has formed a new team within the Defense Department to leverage artificial intelligence and machine learning in order to derive intelligence and insights from large volumes of data, Breaking Defense reported Friday.

Sydney J. Freedberg Jr. writes Work wrote in an April 26 memo that the Algorithmic Warfare Cross-Functional Team will focus on the development of AI-based platforms designed to process large volumes of video content collected by unmanned aerial systems built for surveillance missions.

AWCFT will work to acquire, develop and modify algorithms, determine computational resources and integrate in 90-day sprints algorithmic-based platforms with programs of record, according to the document obtained by Breaking Defense.

The new team will also develop computer vision algorithms for use in object classification and detection in support of full-motion video processing, exploitation and dissemination operations.

The defense undersecretary for intelligence will oversee the new task force to be run by the director for defense intelligence-warfighter support, according to the memo.

Work said he expects AWCFT to submit its initial report by May 1, the report added.
