October 13, 2021 News, Technology
Heidi Shyu, undersecretary for research and engineering at the Department of Defense and a previous Wash100 Award winner, discussed several technology areas that are critical to DOD’s efforts in countering adversaries and one of those is artificial intelligence, Defense One reported Monday.
“Industry is spending billions of dollars on AI ML [machine and learning] and billions on autonomy. What I want to do is make sure we converge on trusted AI ML, trusted autonomy… In my mind, we have to drive towards affordable, attributable, survivable unmanned platforms. To do that, it's gonna be critical to have trusted AI ML and trusted autonomy,” Shyu told the publication in an interview.
When it comes to cybersecurity, she highlighted the need to speed up detection of cyber vulnerabilities and the importance of open architectures.
“What you don't want to do is lock into one architecture and so, as the threats evolve, you're stuck with a legacy architecture. So, if we have a modular open architecture…with a secure processor that's able to evolve at the speed of commercial technology, that's what's going to be critical,” Shyu said.
Shyu also shared her insights on hypersonics, microprocessors, space and biotechnology.
