Air Force Holds Workshop on Technologies Enabling Collaborative Combat Aircraft

Victoria Coleman, chief scientist of the U.S. Air Force and a past Potomac Officers Club event speaker, has hosted a four-day foundational innovation and technology education workshop to provide participants serving the Department of the Air Force’s research enterprise with knowledge on emerging technologies essential to collaborative combat aircraft development.

Officers, enlisted personnel and civilians focused on developing CCA attended lectures covering the internet of things, big data and artificial intelligence and engaged in scenario-based exercises to identify and recommend measures that should be implemented when applying the said technologies, the Air Force website reported.

The recommendations include enhancing and integrating cybersecurity practices in the Air Force’s data strategy and ensuring the strategy is implemented in operational processes. Participants also proposed continuously conducting similar workshops and developing specialized AI professional education to help improve personnel’s decision-making capabilities.

In a speech, Coleman urged attendees to use the knowledge they obtained to enable continuous innovation and change for the benefit of the United States and its allies.

The workshop, which began on June 5, was held in partnership with the Department of the Air Force-Massachusetts Institute of Technology Artificial Intelligence Accelerator.
