Sablon said before AI-based machines drive wartime strategy, there has to be more research into understanding how large language models work. C3 Generative AI allows users to quickly find information they need to make decisions. Using generative AI models for defense and intelligence purposes requires a setup with access controls, according to Abbo. If users ask the generative AI why a defense system stopped working, the C3 tool will navigate sensor data and standard operating procedure guides to find out why. DOD is interested in using AI to assist with writing contracts, responding to emails, generating or tracking tasks, and creating presentations, she said.
