Launching Access to Digital On-Demand Learning Platform is the Chief Digital and Artificial Intelligence Office
The “Digital On-Demand” initiative, which aims to accelerate the field of artificial intelligence (AI) by giving the DoD enterprise access to the Horizon learning resource library at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), was announced today by the Chief Digital and Artificial Intelligence Office (CDAO) of the Department of Defense (DoD). All DoD military personnel and civilian employees will have access to the MIT Horizon learning platform through the CDAO, giving users flexible, mobile-friendly alternatives for content viewing.
“The CDAO is rolling out Digital On-Demand to foster a baseline understanding of AI systems and other emerging technologies,” said Chief Digital and Artificial Intelligence Officer Dr. Craig Martell. “This resource demonstrates to the DoD workforce how they fit into the future of these advancements and further enables their adoption throughout the Department.”
The CDAO gives this capacity through Digital University, a joint endeavor of the U.S. Aviation based armed forces and U.S. Space Power, allowing clear admittance to top tier preparing content. Advanced – On-Request can be utilized y to acquire fundamental information on specific innovations and as a simple reference instrument to give definitions or clarifications of terms and ideas.
The MIT Skyline on-line stage comprises of scaled down learning resources on computer based intelligence capacities as well as on other arising innovations, including the Internet of Things (IoT), 5G, Edge Figuring, Generative simulated intelligence, Network safety, and Huge Information Examination. One objective of giving this initial step of passage level simulated intelligence information is to lay out a typical language and understanding to empower better correspondence across the DoD.
“The DoD is on a historical journey of building a digital workforce. When it comes to AI and emerging technologies, it is really important that their employees are all speaking the same language,” said Kathleen Kennedy, senior director of MIT Horizon and executive director of the MIT Center for Collective Intelligence. “We are excited to collaborate with DoD on this effort to accelerate AI knowledge and emerging technologies across their entire workforce.”
The successful soft launch that took place earlier this summer for staff members of the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) and Special Operations Command (SOCOM) precedes today’s launch. Furthermore, the CDAO piloted content into a 101-training program for around 1,200 DoD participants in August 2022. According to the pilot’s results, 91% of participants said the material expanded their knowledge of AI, and 97% said it was pertinent to their jobs.
About the CDAO
The CDAO became functional in June 2022 and is devoted to coordinating and artificial intelligence reasoning capacities across the DoD. The workplace is liable for speeding up the DoD’s reception of information, examination, and artificial intelligence to empower choice benefit from the meeting room to the front line.
