VeraLinn Jamieson

Air Force Lt. Gen. VeraLinn “Dash” Jamieson, deputy chief of staff for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance on the air staff at the Defense Department, has said artificial intelligence can facilitate real-time decision-making for airmen operating in virtual and physical battlespaces, Military.com reported Monday.

“We do need our analysts to harmonize the data to decision quality at speed,” Jamieson said Thursday at an Air Force Association event.

“We must build the next-generation ISR enterprise capable of possessing decision advantage across the entire spectrum of conflict,” she added.

Jamieson noted the Air Force needs a culture change to advance the transition to a new approach that seeks to optimize use of data, analytics, machine intelligence and human-machine teaming technologies.

She also cited China’s increasing spending on AI systems and its potential impact on the U.S. military’s competitive edge in AI tech.
