Online Event: AI, Defense, and Intelligence: A Conversation with JAIC Director Lt. Gen. John N.T. “Jack” Shanahan

May 29, 2020 • 9:30 – 10:30 am EDT
Please join the International Security Program on Friday, May 29th at 9:30 am ET for a conversation with Lieutenant General Jack Shanahan, the Director of the Department of Defense Joint Artificial Intelligence Center. Established in 2018, the JAIC is the organization leading the Defense Department’s efforts to operationalize AI for national security.
Beyond technology development, the JAIC serves as the focal point for AI governance in defense and the institution of ethical principles for AI use. This conversation will explore how AI is being integrated into the defense enterprise and how the Department is adapting talent acquisition and management to the needs of a 21st century digital organization. AI and subsets like machine learning also have the potential to reshape and even transform intelligence missions. The conversation will also explore how these technologies can better empower U.S. intelligence and how the Department of Defense and broader Intelligence Community can best leverage these technologies for future defense and intelligence missions.

This event is made possible through CSIS general funds.
