Pentagon Steers Toward Responsible AI Plan: Late last month, Deputy Secretary of Defense Kathleen Hicks issued a memo outlining the steps the Pentagon will take to implement “Responsible AI” (RAI) across the DOD. Last year, the Pentagon adopted five “DOD AI Ethical Principles,” (which we covered at the time). The new memo reaffirms those principles and lists key tenets the department will adhere to when implementing RAI, including ensuring trust between warfighters and AI systems and building an “RAI-ready” workforce. The memo names the Joint Artificial Intelligence Center as the coordinating body for RAI’s implementation and directs it to form and train an “RAI Working Council,” which will develop an RAI strategy and implementation plan, a talent management plan, and an AI acquisition plan over the coming months.
