AI Awards 2024 - Best AI Team – Department of the Air Force Chief Data and AI Office

The Department of the Air Force (DAF) Chief Data and AI Office, AI Division’s achievements have truly reshaped the future of defense technology, setting a formidable pace in AI applications within the United States Air and Space Forces. The expert AI team has delivered – and continues to deliver – an unprecedented suite of accomplishments that are elevating the DAF’s AI and data science capabilities. Key milestones include the development of the first publicly available AI roadmap which is propelling the DAF to the forefront of AI-readiness in alignment with directives from the National Security Commission on AI. 

“Dr Graves’s adept leadership has fostered groundbreaking partnerships and initiatives. Their strategic influence extends beyond the DAF, impacting the broader defense sector and fostering collaboration with industry and academia.” – Judges’ comment.  

Under Dr Lynne Graves’s stewardship, the AI team inaugurated partnerships, including with the groundbreaking Autonomy Data and AI Experimentation Proving Ground (ADAx); the first of its kind in the Department of Defense dedicated to propelling live testing of AI and autonomous systems throughout their life cycles.    The efforts and dedication of the AI team further yielded the first Test and Evaluation AI primer and the inception of the DAF AI procurement strategy handbook. These essential frameworks position the Department’s enterprise to synchronize efforts across two integral branches of military service, catalyzing strategic and cohesive advances in critical technologies. 

“The team’s exceptional contributions, marked by innovation and strategic vision, position them as deserving recipients of the Best AI team award, showcasing their pivotal role in shaping the future of defense technology.” – Judges’ comment.
