Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., chair of the House Armed Services Committee’s emerging threats and capabilities subcommittee, led a roundtable Thursday with industry representatives and subject matter experts on commercial artificial intelligence technology.
HASC said Friday the closed meeting sought to identify opportunities, challenges and implications of AI adoption efforts.
Accenture, FireEye, Boston Consulting Group and Pilot.ai were among the technology companies that participated in the roundtable.
“Over the last year, we have explored technology issues that could drastically change the way wars are fought, impacting not only our national security, but our economic security as well,” Stefanik said.
She added that the subcommittee aims to encourage partnerships between the government, industry and academia to integrate AI into Defense Department projects such as Project Maven.
Stefanik introduced a bill in March that calls for the establishment of an independent commission to help the federal government implement the technology.
