Like the private sector and other organizations striving to improve efficiency and effectiveness, the Department of Defense (DoD) has increasingly embraced generative AI. These advanced systems, capable of creating new content by learning from existing data, are being applied to a diverse array of military applications, from data synthesis to autonomous system design. Yet, for all its promise, the adoption of generative AI by the DoD has not been without hurdles. Complications with existing legacy systems and the need for training and reskilling personnel present significant challenges. To gain insights into these adoption challenges – and possible solutions – BENS recently interviewed industry leaders Benjamin Cheatham, Vice President of Data and Artificial Intelligence at Microsoft; Shaun Modi, founder and CEO of Capitol AI; John Zangardi, CEO of Redhorse Corporation; and Dennis Chornenky, CEO of Domelabs AI.
