Transformation 911: Godzilla vs. Mothra

US strategic dominance is rooted in innovation. But an innovation crisis is looming as USG strives to execute on transformative missions. As China builds an AI industry to overtake US AI capability by 2025, the US mission hinges on new innovation mechanisms, like the Joint Artificial Intelligence Center and Digital Transformation of all of the Federal Government. Goals for JAIC and Government Digital Transformation: focus DoD and Federal/Civilian Agencies’ hundreds of separate AI and IT modernization projects and get all the data that its agencies, military forces and the intelligence community are generating in a place that’s usable and useful. But AI innovation in military, federal agencies and local governments depends on an ecosystem.
