Building the Army’s Artificial Intelligence Workforce
USMA Research Unit Affiliation
Army Cyber Institute
Introducing AI capabilities into the military will impact virtually all Army warfighting functions, including: mission command (e.g., battlefield virtual assistant for command and control), movement and maneuver (e.g., self-driving tanks, helicopters, and other vehicles), fires (e.g., autonomous weapon systems and AI-enabled targeting), sustainment (e.g., predictive maintenance and logistics), protection (e.g., anomaly detection to protect critical infrastructures), intelligence (e.g., AI-based information collection, data fusion and analysis), and special operations. Creating a robust AI workforce challenges the Army’s organizational capacity to best leverage and grow AI talent. At a minimum, changes are needed to ensure that resources will be available to complement the AI workforce changes, but that they will be available in a way that will better support the Army’s operating forces.
