Biden Executive Order Requires DOD to Identify AI-Enabled Network Security Solutions
President Joe Biden has mandated the Department of Defense to look for ways to use artificial intelligence to protect national security networks.
The requirement is part of the “Safe, Secure, and Trustworthy Development and Use of Artificial Intelligence” executive order signed on Monday. Under the EO, the secretaries of defense and homeland security must identify, develop, test, evaluate and deploy AI capabilities to look for, remediate and mitigate network threats.
The pilot must be done within six months, and the secretaries must submit their findings to the White House in nine months, DefenseScoop reported Monday.
The Pentagon has been looking for ways to advance AI for defense purposes.
In September, the DOD announced plans to establish the Bravo Artificial Intelligence Battle Labs at the U.S. European Command and the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command. The battle labs would allow warfighters to design and test data analytics and AI capabilities through hackathons, some of which will take place with coalition partners in 2024.
