Pentagon goes on AI hiring spree to bring machine learning capabilities to the battlefield

The Department of Defense is hiring data scientists, technologists, and engineers as part of its effort to build artificial intelligence into the machines used to wage war.

The Department of Defense has posted several AI jobs on over the past few weeks.

One of the high-paying jobs advertised in recent weeks is that of a senior engineer in “cognitive and decision science” at the US Navy’s Point Loma Complex in San Diego. That job he starts at $170,000 and could pay as much as $212,000 a year to anyone who can help bring “cutting-edge technology” to the Navy’s weapons and equipment.

This includes technologies such as “augmented reality, artificial intelligence, human condition monitoring, and autonomous unmanned systems.”

The Navy also hired a manager at the Naval Information Warfare Systems Command in South Carolina to work on adding AI applications to support “expeditionary combat, decision-making intelligence, and military support functions,” and a data scientist to help find ways. I am considering hiring. Incorporate AI into the decision-making process of the Naval Special Warfare Command.

Earlier this month, Chief of Naval Operations Michael Gilday said the Navy was moving quickly toward using AI, envisioning using “minimally manned” ships before moving to fully autonomous ships. I said yes.

The Department of Defense’s Chief Digital and Artificial Intelligence Office (CDAO) is also considering hiring two AI experts for jobs starting at $155,000. His CDAO, founded last year, is working to accelerate the use of AI to “create a decision-making advantage” in wartime, and the agency is considering hiring a supervisory program manager and supervisory computer his scientist. doing.

Elsewhere, the Air Force will hire senior scientists in the field of ‘human-machine teaming’ to lead programs where research focuses on humans, machines, artificial intelligence, autonomous systems, and technology-centric solutions. Based at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio, the job starts at $156,000.

The U.S. Army’s Futures Command headquarters in Austin, Texas, has named its director of systems integration “to provide combatants with the concepts and future force designs they need to dominate the battlefield of the future,” working with AI and other technologies. We are hiring.


Also, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency in Springfield, Virginia, states, “Machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques for automating the analysis of image, video, or other sensor data; predictive intelligence modeling; human machine teaming; “And so on. That job starts at $141,000 a year.
