Summary: In August 2023, the Pentagon announced its commitment to a data-driven and AI-empowered military through the Combined Joint All-Domain Command and Control (CJADC2) initiative, emphasizing the role of AI in enhancing warfighting capabilities. This move aligns with the DOD’s broader strategy to leverage AI and analytics for decision-making advantages. The Pentagon is also focusing on ethical AI deployment, having adopted principles for responsible AI use and initiated strategies to mitigate risks associated with AI, including in autonomous weapons systems. Concerns about AI include its integration into lethal autonomous weapons, which pose ethical and operational risks. The Pentagon’s approach to AI is influenced by the need to maintain competitive advantages, particularly against China, while navigating the ethical and practical challenges of incorporating AI into military operations and decision-making processes.
