Artificial intelligence (AI) and its related technologies promise to increase the speed, efficiency, and effectiveness of each phase in the intelligence cycle to better support naval commanders. AI holds promise for every military function, but especially for intelligence because of the availability of large datasets, an intelligent workforce, the proliferation and integration of technology, and repeatable processes widely understood by a diverse workforce.
AI and the Intelligence Process
Joint Publication 2-0 articulates the six categories of intelligence operations as planning and direction, collection, processing and exploitation, analysis and production, dissemination and integration, and evaluation and feedback. Numerous examples from research, private industry, and existing technologies showcase AI’s ability to improve naval intelligence.
