US Army Pacific Discusses AI/ML Use Cases During Three-Day Summit

The U.S. Army Pacific hosted the third iteration of its Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning Summit in Hawaii on Oct. 25 and 26, where participants talked about the emerging technologies’ implications in the Indo-Pacific region.

During the event, speakers discussed the importance of the Army’s engagement with the AI/ML community, use case experimentation, AI/ML advancements and other topics. Four main working groups were also formed to see how the emerging technologies could be used for contested naval logistics, tactical and artificial reasoning, human behavior and order-of-battle movements.

More than 150 external attendees were present during the event, the U.S. Army Pacific said.

The military branch has been looking for ways to adopt and understand AI and ML over the recent months.

Earlier in October, the Army awarded five small businesses contract offers worth nearly $1.25 million in total to develop AI-powered language translator software. The companies, selected from a pool of proposals submitted in June, were tasked to gather developmental and evaluation-based feedback from soldiers and create a prototype translator that can handle lesser-known Indo-Pacific languages.
