The National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence convened Thursday, July 11, in Cupertino, Calif., for its third plenary session and received “classified briefings on counterintelligence threats and challenges” related to AI, C4ISRNET reported Monday.
“The session advanced the Commission’s understanding of the nature and challenges facing the United States,” Commissioner Andy Jassy, CEO of Amazon Web Services, said in a Department of Defense news release.
The third session specifically included classified discussions regarding opportunities to advance the country’s leadership in AI and workshop reports on potential uses of AI in national security and ways to maintain U.S. leadership in AI research. The report said the commission hasn’t released any information about its recommendations related to AI. The national commission was created in accordance with the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act to assess advances in AI, machine learning and related technologies to address economic and national security risks.
