1 min read

The Department of Defense and University of Maryland held a ribbon-cutting ceremony Thursday for a new center that was established to conduct studies in artificial intelligence, advanced computing and other technology areas.

The Applied Research Laboratory for Intelligence and Security (ARLIS) at College Park is among the 14 university-affiliated research centers that DOD sponsors.

Kathleen Hicks, deputy defense secretary and a 2021 Wash100 Award recipient, said that ARLIS works to help the department innovate to address potential threats from transnational, state and non-state actors.

“It is a flexible and responsive organization. It leverages technology and science to meet increasingly critical national security challenges. It could not have come at a better time,” Hicks added.
