The National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence will officially dissolve on Oct. 1 after three years of helping Congress and the White House gain insight into possible approaches to advance AI and machine learning development.

NSCAI said Thursday it produced a total of five reports that recommend strategies to apply AI in defense and national security missions since the formation of the group in 2018.

According to the independent body, over 19 of its recommendations were featured in the National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year 2021 and more others are being considered in the fiscal 2022 defense policy bill and other non-defense science and technology bills.

“We are hopeful that the departments, agencies, the administration, industry and academia will continue this important conversation,” said Robert Work, vice chair of NSCAI and a two-time Wash100 Award recipient.

The government will archive all commission reports, press releases and podcasts on the CyberCemetery website hosted by University of North Texas Libraries.
