Within the next five years DoD will start to field AI/autonomous programs of record (e.g., the Army’s Autonomous Convoy System/Expedient Leader Follower).Much like when the “Big 5” (M1, M2, Multiple Launched Rocket System, Apache, and Blackhawk) were fielded in the 1980’s, for AI and autonomous systems, analysts will be ask to conduct cost analysis, force structure analysis, and analyze changes in Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures.Thus, analysts must be familiar with capabilities and limitations of AI and autonomy technologies.Like the 2018 AI and Autonomy I Special Meeting, the October 2020 is another step in the journey to build this knowledge set and give analysts a look into the crystal ball of possible AI and autonomous capabilities that will probably mature within the next five years. Topics include:
o Defense and Security Applications
o Ethics and Explainability
o Test and Evaluation Capabilities
o Ongoing International and Industrial Applications
o Looking Five Years into the Future
Participants from government, industry, academia, local and international are welcome to attend. To foster participation from a broad spectrum of analysts and researchers interested in AI and autonomy, this Workshop will be held at the unclassified level.
Working Group and Session Chairs are in need of assistance and presentations. If you are interested in assisting one or more Session Chairs or making a presentation, please contact MAJ Nathaniel Bastian (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Mr. Don Timian (email@example.com).
