DoD’s New Center to Help Explore AI for Vast Data Analysis in the Field

The Defense Department will establish a new center to help the agency leverage artificial intelligence to better understand signals collected in the electromagnetic spectrum, C4ISRnet reported Monday.

Dana Deasy, the DoD's chief information officer, will oversee the Joint Artificial Intelligence Center.  

The DoD hopes the JAIC will help speed up and organize processes to apply AI in military operations, mainly streamlining the process to analyze vast data in electronic warfare. 

“AI no doubt will play a key role of sorting through all that data,” Deasy said. “It will do analysis and fusion of that data, which is overwhelming currently to our planners and operators.”

To provide industry with more information on the JAIC, Deasy noted the DoD will host an industry day on Nov. 28 in Silver Spring, Va., and release an unclassified version of the agency’s AI strategy in the coming weeks.

The agency plans to provide $1.7B in funding to establish the AI center over the next five years.
