Intell Community Looks at Potential Benefits of AI, Automation to Analysts; Neil Wiley Quoted

U.S. intelligence community leaders have said they believe artificial intelligence and automation could help intelligence analysts process a larger pool of data to explore a scenario and address a problem, Federal News Radio reported Thursday.

Neil Wiley, director for analysis at the Defense Intelligence Agency, said he believes having access to large volumes of data through automation would lead to new possibilities from an ethical and analytical perspective.

Wiley also cited the need for the intelligence community to look at ethical considerations when it comes to machine-derived assessments.

“Just because a machine generated it, does not get us off the hook for the ethical standards required of an intelligence problem,” he added.
