Chief Technology Officer,
US Central Command’s Schuyler Moore Says AI Needs to Mature
Schuyler Moore, the U.S. Central Command’s chief technology officer and a past Potomac Officers Club event speaker, said the Department of Defense considers artificial intelligence one of its “less mature” capabilities.
Speaking at an online Middle East Institute event, Moore explained that AI is promising but performs inconsistently, Nextgov/FCW reported Tuesday.
She maintained that CENTCOM will continue to experiment and invest in the technology for its long-term potential.
According to Moore, AI in its present state could support the command’s workflows where it can be expected to work effectively or when incorrect functionality can be detected easily. In military conflicts, officials are likely to sideline the technology or utilize it in specific contexts where risks are certain, she added.
Moore noted that AI work by CENTCOM task forces has prioritized unmanned systems and software that can accelerate workflows. She went on to say that long-term use cases will need a mechanism allowing for consistent AI model performance such as setting technical expectations for developers, active user engagement and access to large amounts of data.
