Bob Work Expects DoD to Establish A.I. Center of Excellence

Robert Work

Bob Work, former U.S. deputy secretary of defense, anticipates the Defense Department to create a center of excellence for artificial intelligence which will help foster collaboration between the department, universities, laboratories and the industry, C4ISRNET reported Tuesday.

The former deputy secretary of defense said tapping into such resources can help the U.S. stay up to date in AI and autonomous technology innovation.

“You are going to see the strategic capabilities office continue, [Defense Innovation Unit Experimental] continue … I believe we are going to see an AI Center of Excellence,” said Work.

During his tenure as deputy secretary of defense, Work developed a plan to mitigate challenges that would prevent the U.S. military from meeting technological superiority objectives in areas including AI, cloud computing and data analytics technologies.

Work said during a Center for a New American Security Brussel Sprouts podcast he believes the Third Offset plan remains intact and the Pentagon will push through with his original goals.
