The Bloomington-based Indiana Innovation Institute has been awarded $2.5 million in initial funding from the Department of Defense to help the U.S. military fully implement artificial intelligence capabilities.
In conjunction with the DoD’s Joint Artificial Center, IN3 will focus on creating a business model that would allow the Pentagon to be able to quickly and more efficiently, “acquire and procure the best artificial intelligence technology for all branches of the military.”
“IN3 is known for bringing together academia, industry and government partners to create a hub of national security innovation and our role in supporting the JAIC is a prime example of that activity,” said Stephen Kelly, IN3 president and chief executive officer. “The IN3 team looks forward to supporting the JAIC in their crucial role of accelerating the integration of AI into mission capabilities.”
Kelly says the first-of-its-kind award is an effort by DoD to widen their scope of academia and organizations to match AI technology with needs in the military.
