Army Secretary Proposes Using AI to Enhance Recruitment Efforts

Christine Wormuth, secretary of the Army and a 2023 Wash100 awardee, has suggested using artificial intelligence to support recruitment efforts amid a continued deficit of new soldiers.

Speaking at a Pentagon media roundtable on Tuesday, she said the technology could support the identification of quality prospects.

Others have said that AI can pull items of interest out of large data quantities and present them to human users.

According to Gen. James McConville, the U.S. Army’s chief of staff, the technology also has potential applications in areas such as talent management and predictive logistics. He added that a person should remain involved in the process and be responsible for decision-making, DefenseScoop reported Tuesday.

The Army is also considering using virtual reality environments as a recruitment tool. Lt. Gen. Maria Gervais, the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command’s deputy commanding general, said the service could use the metaverse to reach out to prospects and promote itself.
