This week I speak to Lieutenant General Jack Shanahan, recently retired Director of the Pentagon’s Joint Artificial Intelligence Center,or JAIC. He was instrumental in starting Project Maven to integrate state-of-the-art computer vision into drone technology. He then started the JAIC, the central hub for the military’s AI efforts. Gen. Shanahan spoke about the challenges of nurturing innovation within a rigid and multilayered organization like the DOD and the threats the US faces ahead.
