Was it 'AI theater' or the future of air combat?

In a recent DARPA-led competition, artificial intelligence once again got the best of humans, out-maneuvering an Air Force F-16 pilot in a virtual reality dogfighting scenario. The result is likely not surprising, given AI's reputation of beating out humans in competitions like chess and "Jeopardy" for the better part of the 21st century.

It’s time to rethink how we handle, view, and work with classified info post-pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic highlights the fact that we must do more to remain competitive when dealing with the nation's classified information, SAP's Mark Testoni says in a new op-ed on FedScoop. COVID-19 must be a wake-up call that to sustain this critical public-private partnership we must take a hard look at what really needs to be classified, who truly needs a clearance, and how we can maintain a nimble, skilled, and diverse national security workforce while still protecting our nation’s secrets, he says.
