The Defense Department plans to deliver by summer a report to Congress that would detail its plans for the establishment of a joint office to oversee artificial technology development and acquisition work between the military and intelligence community, Breaking Defense reported Friday.

Michael Griffin, defense undersecretary for research and engineering, said at an event Friday at the Hudson Institute that the joint artificial intelligence center would enable service branches and intelligence agencies to advance the government’s AI programs through the combination of their efforts.

Griffin, a 2018 Wash100 recipient, told the audience that the proposed JAIC will speed up AI tools development by eliminating silos across military and IC agencies in an effort to ensure the country’s technological edge in machine learning.

The plan to set up a new joint office comes as China makes technological advances in AI.
