The Military’s Biggest AI Challenge: Convincing Commanders to Embrace It
 
25 Nov 2020
Military.com | By Matthew Cox

The general overseeing the effort to bring the power of artificial intelligence to the U.S. military said Tuesday that one of the effort's major hurdles will be to convince battlefield commanders that AI isn't a new way to store information on a computer.

"AI is not [information technology], it's not a black box that a contractor is going to deliver to you, it's not some digital gadget that an IT rep will show you how to log into," Marine Corps Lt. Gen. Michael Groen, director of the Pentagon's Joint Artificial Intelligence Center (JAIC), told defense reporters during a Pentagon briefing.

"This is warfighting business; it is assessments and analysis of warfighting decision-making. ... It's driving leaders to think -- you know, I could make a better decision if I knew 'X.' JAIC wants to help leaders at every level get to that 'X.'"

Training commanders to accept and understand how to best use new technologies is not a new problem. That reluctance is part of how Iron Bottom Sound in the Solomon Islands earned its nickname.
