AI and Machine Learning to Revolutionize U.S. Intelligence Community, Pentagon Official Says
Don’t change the culture. Unleash the culture.
That was the message one young officer gave Lt. General John “Jack” Shanahan — the Pentagon’s director for defense for warfighter support — who is hustling to put artificial intelligence and machine learning to work for the U.S. Defense Department.
Highlighting the growing role AI is playing in security, intelligence and defense, Shanahan spoke Wednesday during a keynote address about his team’s use of GPU-driven deep learning at our GPU Technology Conference in Washington.
Shanahan leads Project Maven, an effort launched in April to put machine learning and AI to work, starting with efforts to turn the countless hours of aerial video surveillance collected by the U.S. military into actionable intelligence.
“We have analysts looking at full-motion video, staring at screens 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 hours at a time. They’re doing the same thing photographic interpreters were doing in World War II,” Shanahan said. “These are the finest, most well-trained analysts in the world.”
