Understanding U.S. Military Investments in AI
If leveraged correctly, investments in defense research can provide the U.S. military with the AI-enabled capabilities needed to deter adversaries, fight and win the wars of the future and cooperate effectively with allies. As the Department of Defense implements its vision for artificial intelligence, CSET Research Fellow Dr. Margarita Konaev will join CSET Distinguished Fellow Dr. Reginald Brothers for a discussion of the scope and implications of U.S. military research investments in autonomy and AI.

Dr. Konaev recently authored a CSET series on the subject. Part I, “A Budgetary Assessment,” draws on publicly available data on DOD’s science and technology program, evaluating the Pentagon’s research investment priorities, trends and gaps. Part II, “A Strategic Assessment,” discusses the impact of DOD’s investment in autonomous and AI-enabled weapons and systems on U.S. military capabilities and strategic interests.

During this webinar, Dr. Konaev will outline the findings of both reports and present a range of recommendations for filling the knowledge gap in human-machine teaming research, minimizing risks from AI misuse, and prioritizing investments in trustworthy, reliable, and secure AI.
