Pentagon Releases Blueprint For Accelerating Artificial Intelligence

• BY: ZACHARY FRYER-BIGGS

By declassifying key elements of a strategy it had adopted last summer, the Defense Department appeared to be trying to address disparate criticism that it was not being heedful enough of the risks of using AI in its weaponry or not being aggressive enough in the face of rival nations' efforts to embrace AI.

The 17-page strategy summary said that AI — a shorthand term for machine-driven learning and decision-making — held out great promise for military applications, and that it "is expected to impact every corner of the Department, spanning operations, training, sustainment, force protection, recruiting, healthcare, and many others."

It depicted AI's embrace in solely positive terms, asserting that "with the application of AI to defense, we have an opportunity to improve support for and protection of U.S. service members, safeguard our citizens, defend our allies and partners, and improve the affordability and speed of our operations."
