Jesse Rowlands, data scientist for the Defense Logistics Agency’s Analytics Center of Excellence, has said that the agency has been partnering with industry on artificial intelligence research and development efforts, National Defense Magazine reported Friday.

Rowlands told the publication that AI has “unlimited applications” at DLA, incuding predictive capabilities that can provide estimates on demand, lead time and component requirements. The agency may also leverage the value of AI in small iterations and models, he noted. 

"That’s not a groundbreaking newspaper story, but you do a bunch of those and you’re having a big effect on the bottom line of the agency that you’re working at,” he added.

According to Rowlands, the recently established Joint AI Center may help Department of Defense agencies establish governance structures and streamline AI implementation.
