Online Event: Enabling the 21st Century Operator: A Conversation with JAIC Director LtGen Michael Groen

November 6, 2020 • 1:00 – 2:00 pm EST

Please join the Center for Strategic and International Studies for a conversation with Joint Artificial Intelligence Center (JAIC) Director, LtGen Michael Groen. AI is already assisting in many DoD mission areas, from logistics to intelligence to day-to-day business functions. But how can AI better enable the execution of military operations and augment core military capabilities—on the ground, in the air, and at sea? LtGen Groen will join CSIS experts Lindsey Sheppard and Brian Katz to discuss his priorities for 2021 as JAIC Director, and how AI can better enable military operators.

Lieutenant General Michael S. Groen assumed his current position as the Director, Joint Artificial Intelligence Center (JAIC) on 1 October 2020. As a member of the JAIC team, he leads the transformation of U.S. Joint warfighting and departmental processes through the integration of Artificial Intelligence. Prior to this nomination, General Groen was assigned to the National Security Agency and served as the Deputy Chief of Computer Network Operations, leading this premier Computer Network Exploitation organization.

This event is made possible by general support to CSIS.
