DHS S&T Unveils Research Strategy for Artificial Intelligence; Kathryn Coulter Mitchell Quoted
The Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology (DHS S&T) Directorate has unveiled a strategy that would guide S&T’s research pursuits in the areas of artificial intelligence and machine learning.
DHS said Friday that its new AI/ML strategic plan defines research efforts that aim to increase S&T’s understanding of opportunities and risks across the dynamic AI landscape.
The directorate wants to drive next-generation AI/ML technologies, apply these technologies to homeland security missions and develop a workforce of interdisciplinary professionals skilled in AI.
“This actionable plan lays out how S&T will build and apply cutting-edge expertise to help the department harness the opportunities of AI/ML technologies while mitigating the associated risks,” said Kathryn Coulter Mitchell, who serves as DHS’s undersecretary for S&T on an acting basis.
The plan supports the DHS-wide Artificial Intelligence Strategy released in December 2020.
