US Air Force Sets Up Environment for Generative AI Experimentation

Venice Goodwine, the Department of the Air Force’s chief information officer, has signed a new policy to enable safe testing of generative artificial intelligence within the service branch’s Office 365 environment.

Speaking at a recent Armed Forces Communications & Electronics Association event, she said airmen and U.S. Space Force guardians will undergo training to improve their understanding of generative AI, Federal News Network reported Friday. Goodwine added that her office has set up a team of experts to increase the Air Force’s understanding of the technology.

She also warned against signing up for commercial generative AI platforms using government accounts and putting non-public data into such tools.

The Air Force is contributing to a Department of Defense task force responsible for ensuring that the technology is adopted throughout the enterprise with minimal risk. 

Air Force Secretary Frank Kendall, a 2023 Wash100 awardee, shared in June that he asked officials to study the potential military uses of generative AI.
