Michael Groen, head of the Department of Defense’s Joint Artificial Intelligence Center (JAIC) and a 2021 Wash100 Award recipient, said “we’re already working on two-thirds of them, Breaking Defense reported Wednesday.

Groen said during a virtual event on Wednesday that partnerships with academia and the U.S. private sector are key to helping JAIC meet the defense-focused AI objectives as stated in the final NSCAI report.

He also talked about AI security and ethics and cited the need to “appreciate the scope of the problem sets” and bring AI and process together.

The Pentagon has to “get process owners to acknowledge AI is not tomorrow’s technology. It’s today’s technology,” he added.

During Potomac Officers Club’s 3rd Annual AI Summit, notable federal and industry leaders will meet to discuss how to advance technology at speed and how private-public partnerships are critical to maintaining the technology race's competitive advantage. 

Featuring 2021 Wash100 Award recipient Lt. Gen. Michael Groen, director of the Joint Artificial Intelligence Center (JAIC), as keynote speaker, the summit will also foster discussions on how collaboration with civilian agencies and international allies is vital to the development and implementation of AI standards that promote interoperability, dependability and trustworthiness.
