Air Force CDAO Set to Retire by End-March

Eileen Vidrine, the Department of the Air Force’s chief data and artificial intelligence officer, is set to retire by the end of March.

Vidrine, a past Potomac Officers Club speaker, was appointed as the department’s CDAO in January 2023 and was tasked with developing and implementing enterprise data management, analytics and digital transformation strategies. She was also responsible for promoting ethical and responsible use of AI and emerging technologies across the Air Force’s mission areas, ensuring that the service becomes AI-ready and AI-competitive and providing employees additional training and education in AI and data.

A DAF spokesperson did not provide information on Vidrine’s successor, DefenseScoop reported.

Months after being appointed CDAO, Vidrine said her team started developing strategies to integrate AI into their portfolio. She also shared that her office has completed over 100 AI use cases, including maintenance, personnel management and ISR.

On March 21, join the Potomac Officers Club’s 5th Annual AI Summit, where federal leaders and industry experts converge to explore the transformative power of artificial intelligence.
