Recent decades have brought a dramatic evolution of intelligent technologies in general, and more specifically in the targeted applications of artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) for increasingly complex tasks and environments. Such advances provide incredible potential for increasing Soldier-system capabilities for dynamic, multi-domain operations within an increasingly complex world. However, for individual as well as teams of Soldiers, these technologies, if designed incorrectly, may threaten the stability, robustness, and resilience of operational performance. The CAST was created to serve as a collaborative nexus that aims to grow and foster a community that is focused on innovative basic and applied research and technology development. The CAST objective is to generate new theories and research methods, as well as germinate and nurture disruptive technologies that will enable diverse groups of humans and intelligent agents to team as robustly as units of highly trained Soldiers do today, if not even surpassing modern capabilities.
Point of Contacts
Jason S. Metcalfe, PhD
Arwen H. DeCostanza, PhD
Open to government, academia and industry.
Concept of operation
Leadership and membership in the center will be participation based. All general communications are intended to be open across government and non-government entities to ensure the focus of the center is on open collaboration rather than funding. The organizational structure of the center is not intended to direct specific research or technology development efforts, but rather to support and foster an ecosystem that inspires collaboration, innovation, and the creation of opportunity.
