This is the December 11, 2018 hearing on "Department of Defense's Artificial Intelligence Structure, Investments, and Applications", held before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities of the Committee on Armed Services. From the opening statement of Elise Stefanik: "Today we will examine the DOD's [Department of Defense's] efforts to transform the delivery of artificial intelligence-enabled [AI] capabilities to the warfighter. AI and machine learning are topics of priority and deep interest among the members of this subcommittee as we build a blueprint for the battlefield of the future. Over the last year, we have explored these technology issues closely and heard from numerous outside subject matter experts on the emerging opportunities, challenges, and implications of adopting commercial artificial intelligence solutions into the defense enterprise. We have also closely examined our adversaries' investments in AI and related technologies, including China's whole-of-society approach, which threatens our competitive advantage. In response, this committee has taken deliberate bipartisan actions to better organize the Department of Defense to oversee, accelerate, and integrate artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies. [...] Today, we will continue this conversation and hear about the DOD's efforts to reorganize and more effectively oversee the execution of AI programs across the military services. We will also examine the Department's investments in basic research to generate groundbreaking AI capabilities for future conflict." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Dana Deasy and Lisa Porter.
