Senate Bill Needs to Fuse Artificial Intelligence Across the U.S.

Senator Mike Rounds, R-South Dakota, recently filed legislation requiring the Defense Department to establish performance targets and metrics that incorporate Artificial Intelligence and digital readiness across all platforms, training, and operations. In recent years, the Defense Department has taken several steps to emphasize widely utilized developing technology. For example, the Joint Artificial Intelligence Center, or JAIC, was established by the Department of Defense in 2018 to strategically unify and accelerate applications across the entire defense and military enterprise of the United States.

“As our adversaries become increasingly sophisticated in integrating into their military capabilities,” Rounds told Nextgov in an email on Tuesday, “we need to do the same.” Nonetheless, the department is missing specific baselines and metrics to match and monitor the performance of its eventual aim. In its final report, the National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence.

It was established by the National Defense Authorization Act of 2019 to review advances in, machine learning, and related technologies and develop policy recommendations, noted that the Pentagon could implement new measures to improve the integration of -driven applications into its exercises, wargames, and experiments, among other things.

The Department of Defense’s investments and integrations would also be thoroughly examined. The bill would, among other things, require department personnel to explore and plan for the future integration of Artificial Intelligence into administrative tasks across the agency, such as human resources, logistics, health care, and human resources. After the comprehensive assessment is finished, a report must be submitted to Congress within 120 days.
