Courtney Crosby, a senior lead scientist at Booz Allen Hamilton, has said that the military's lack of internal artificial intelligence experts warrants collaborations with industry until its human capital is “fully developed.“

In a C4ISRnet piece published Wednesday, Crosby wrote that while such partnerships will bring together experts such as scientists and cognitive engineers, AI professionals with mission-specific experience will help translate complex AI methodology for warfighters with non-technical knowledge in the emerging technology.

She added that the Department of Defense must implement AI into military teaming operations and deploy a cognitive engineering approach to AI training activities to cultivate the workforce “deemed necessary for future success.“

“AI training can target all three features of future warfare by empowering the services with broad understanding, technical instruction, and teaming exercises,“ Crosby said. “In an era were operational offsets are limited and where technology superiority is constantly challenged, the services cannot afford to neglect AI adoption.“
