The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) and its U.K.-based counterpart jointly created and tested machine learning algorithms designed to support both countries.
AFRL’s Information Directorate in Rome, N.Y., virtually hosted the algorithms’ demonstration with the U.K.’s defense science and technology laboratory in Salisbury, the U.S. Air Force said Wednesday.
The event, which took place on Monday, demonstrated how the two nations can develop, share and deploy data and algorithms via a common platform.
Research under effort aimed to boost situational awareness, better inform decision making, improve operational tempo and reduce life risks of U.S. and U.K. warfighters.
The two nations formed an artificial intelligence-focused partnership in December 2020, leading to the recent demonstration.
The four-year Autonomy and Artificial Intelligence Collaboration Partnership Agreement supports AI research and development and all-domain experiments between the two countries.
