- Angela Sheffield, senior program manager for AI for Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation Research and Development at the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), said the United States national security enterprise must apply creativity and determination to develop the artificial intelligence capabilities necessary to win in competition with China, Russia and emerging threats.
- Sheffield said the focus should be on better methods for building powerful artificial intelligence systems to analyze existing data.
