Andrew Charles: Navy Should Determine Where AI Fits Into System

Capt. Andrew Charles, director of tactical exploitation of national capabilities for the U.S. Navy, has said the service should determine where artificial intelligence technologies apply in its operations, and where they don't, Federal News Network reported Friday.

"I'm going to figure out where AI doesn't belong and where it does belong in that decision cycle that takes me from finding a potential threat to engaging that potential threat somehow," Charles said during a future naval technology panel at the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association Nova Navy information technology day on Oct. 1.

Charles said issues regarding AI platforms include security breaches and the inability of AI modules to make critical subjective decisions during warfare.

Kurt Wendelken, assistant commander of supply chain technology/systems integration at Naval Supply Systems Command, said whenever the topic of AI arises, people become concerned about their job security.
