WASHINGTON. The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has released the summary of its strategy on artificial intelligence (AI) -- called "Harnessing AI to Advance Our Security and Prosperity -- in which the DoD outlines how it will leverage AI into the future.
The DoD news release says that its strategic approach to AI emphasizes its rapid, iterative, and responsible delivery and then takes those lessons learned to create repeatable and scalable processes and systems that will improve functions and missions across the department.
Key tenets of the strategy, say DoD officials, are accelerating the delivery and adoption of AI; establishing a common foundation for scaling AI's effect across DoD that will enable decentralized development and experimentation; evolving partnerships with industry, academia, allies and partners; cultivating a leading AI workforce; and leading the nation and world in military AI ethics and safety.
