The Imperative for Artificial Intelligence
We all need to start moving on AI.
“Artificial intelligence will be mission-critical to future industrial development. This editorial spells out a real and growing need throughout the defense community that overlaps with industry needs today. The use of AI will dramatically improve the quality and speed of training, especially when wed to virtual and augmented reality (MR/XR).” – Matthew Wallace, CEO & President
The United States enjoys a long track record of dominating conventional military operations, driven in large part by our technological superiority — the nation’s ability to develop new capabilities and rapidly integrate them into military operations.

To protect the U.S. military’s technological edge, government, industry and academia must work together to develop and operationalize artificial intelligence, the technology most likely to drive outcomes on future battlefields.
