Generative AI Task Force

Generative AI Task Force Announced by DoD: Artificial Intelligence Trends

See what I did there? 😉 Last week, the Department of Defense (DoD) announced the establishment of a generative AI task force!

The announcement published here references the generative AI task force as “an initiative that reflects the DoD’s commitment to harnessing the power of artificial intelligence in a responsible and strategic manner.”

More from the announcement, as follows:

“Deputy Secretary of Defense Dr. Kathleen Hicks directed the organization of Task Force Lima; it will play a pivotal role in analyzing and integrating generative AI tools, such as large language models (LLMs), across the DoD.

‘The establishment of Task Force Lima underlines the Department of Defense’s unwavering commitment to leading the charge in AI innovation,’ Hicks said. ‘As we navigate the transformative power of generative AI, our focus remains steadfast on ensuring national security, minimizing risks, and responsibly integrating these technologies. The future of defense is not just about adopting cutting-edge technologies, but doing so with foresight, responsibility, and a deep understanding of the broader implications for our nation.’

Led by the Chief Digital and Artificial Intelligence Office (CDAO), Task Force Lima will assess, synchronize, and employ generative AI capabilities across the DoD, ensuring the Department remains at the forefront of cutting-edge technologies while safeguarding national security.

‘The DoD has an imperative to responsibly pursue the adoption of generative AI models while identifying proper protective measures and mitigating national security risks that may result from issues such as poorly managed training data,’ said Dr. Craig Martell, the DoD Chief Digital and Artificial Intelligence Officer. ‘We must also consider the extent to which our adversaries will employ this technology and seek to disrupt our own use of AI-based solutions.’


Leveraging partnerships across the Department, Intelligence Community and other government agencies, the task force will help minimize risk and redundancy while pursuing generative AI initiatives across the Department.

Hat tip to Sheila Grela for the heads up! The generative AI task force is yet another organization trying to get their arms around the enigma of generative AI. Good to see our government agencies aren’t being left out on this one.

So, what do you think? Are you excited about the DoD’s generative AI task force? Or do you now have a burning desire to watch the movie Falling Down again? Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.

Happy Anniversary to my beautiful and wonderful wife, Paige! I love you honey! Here’s a picture (not generated by AI) of us from our recent trip to Ireland and the Cliffs of Moher!
