Defense Department Chief Information Officer Dana Deasy has said DoD is examining the science behind artificial technology and its potential application to the Pentagon’s various missions.
“Our knowledge of what AI does better than humans will ultimately lead to a robust human-machine partnership,” Deasy told audience at the DoDIIS Worldwide conference held earlier this month, according to FedScoop.
He noted that collaborating with AI systems could help warfighters obtain an “asymmetric” advantage as they work to address current and emerging threats.
Deasy also urged government, commercial and academic organizations to support the Joint AI Center.
DoD established the center last month to establish a set of AI standards, reusable technology, processes and shared data for use across the department.
