DoD, Singaporean Gov’t Launch AI Implementation Effort for Disaster Response

Jeff Brody

The Department of Defense’s Joint Artificial Intelligence Center has partnered with a Singaporean agency for defense science and technology to promote the use of AI for humanitarian assistance and disaster relief in the Asia-Pacific region. The Pentagon said Thursday that both government units held a recent technology exchange to announce their intent to collaborate to improve crisis response and reduce time allocated for search and discovery through AI technology.

“These missions challenge the community to advance the state of AI and learn how to operationalize and integrate technologies across international organizations,” DoD said.

Both entities are planning to expand U.S.-Singapore partnerships on AI development for other applications including defense operations.
