Preparing Sailors for the Age of AI

Summary: The U.S. Navy is increasingly incorporating AI and unmanned systems into its operations. However, it lacks defined training and education for personnel operating AI systems, which could lead to inefficiencies and a loss of talent to the private sector. The Navy must establish career frameworks and training programs for AI operators, as AI becomes more integral to naval operations and decision-making. Recognizing the importance of talent, the Department of Defense (DoD) must invest in educating AI practitioners, ensuring they can remain in AI-related career fields and continuously develop their skills. The Navy can leverage its existing workforce, including personnel with STEM backgrounds, to meet AI-related needs. Developing partnerships with academic institutions can further facilitate AI innovation and education.
