Gen. Steve Lyons, commander of U.S. Transportation Command, has said the military organization is exploring the potential application of artificial intelligence in command-and-control functions, National Defense reported Wednesday.

He told reporters at a breakfast event held Wednesday in Washington, D.C. that Transcom aims to shift away from its current transactional approach and synthesize data as part of efforts to help personnel make decisions, maintain systems and forecast events.

The command has created a proof of principle of an enterprise data environment and hosted a sprint program that saw the migration certain systems to a cloud computing environment, according to the report.

“We're still working to make them cloud native and move the entire architecture over time,” Lyons added.
