The rise of advanced machine learning capabilities is revolutionizing organizational tools, processes, and performance models. For military communicators, the large-scale adoption of these technologies will not only impact capabilities for how each Service provides C4IM services but also the demands upon these services for subscribers. Policy decisions on data standardization, platform consistency, and infrastructure planning are urgently needed. This panel will explore this topic given perspectives from Army Futures Command, Academia, and Industry.
