Deploying AI in defense organizations
Artificial intelligence (AI) has radically redefined many aspects of everyday life. Organizations across both the public and private sectors are exploiting AI for a wide array of applications. For defense organizations, AI solutions also present significant opportunities to improve mission effectiveness.
In late 2020, we surveyed 250 defense technology leaders from around the world to understand how defense organizations are using AI and how this technology will shape military operations going forward. This report highlights insights from this research on the state of AI planning and adoption across defense organizations, as well as participants’ perspectives on where AI can drive value.
In addition, we shared these insights with a roundtable of global defense experts, and those discussions provided additional input and context for this report. We gratefully acknowledge the contributions of all participants.
We hope this report provides leaders across the global defense community useful insights that can assist their organizations in realizing the promise and potential of AI. Stay tuned for future reports, where we will explore further insights on how defense organizations can leverage AI for mission success.
