How the Pentagon is embracing AI; election officials’ concerns going into 2024

Everyone seems to agree that AI is going to revolutionize warfare, but exactly how is very much up for debate. Jack Shanahan has worked at the center of the U.S. military’s attempt to integrate AI into how wars are fought. In 2020, he retired as a Lieutenant General from the U.S. Air Force after a 36-year career. He was the inaugural director of the Department of Defense’s Joint Artificial Intelligence Center and was the first director of the Pentagon’s Algorithmic Warfare Cross-Functional Team, better known as Project Maven. He sits down with host Elias Groll to discuss how the U.S. military is integrating AI into its warfighting capabilities. Reporter Derek B. Johnson joins the show to discuss his reporting about how state election officials are preparing for 2024.
