This is the March 12, 2019 hearing on "Artificial Intelligence Initiatives Within the Department of Defense," held before the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities of the Committee on Armed Services. From the opening statement of Joni Ernst: "The recently released Department of Defense Artificial Intelligence Strategy makes clear AI [artificial intelligence] is poised to transform every industry and is expected to impact every corner of the Department, spanning operations, training, sustainment, force protection, recruiting, healthcare, and many others. AI has the ability to provide powerful new capabilities to our warfighters that we are only beginning to imagine. When applied to back-office functions and operations within the Department, AI will be critical in boosting efficiency and increasing the effectiveness of limited resources. With such broad potential impacts, it is important that the Department move quickly to adopt these capabilities so that we don't lose the technological edge." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Peter T. Highnam, Michael A. Brown, and John N.T. Shanahan.
