The Army looks to pave way for autonomous vehicles with new AI research

The Army has a new idea for how it could train autonomous vehicles. It centers on a school of artificial intelligence currently used in robots called “reinforcement learning.” The branch of machine learning emulates how humans learn: It takes an “agent” that uses prior knowledge gleaned from training datasets to make decisions in novel environments. The Army said the research is “critical” to moving the Army closer to its “Multi-Domain Operations” future operating concept, one of its flagship modernization objectives to get different vehicles in different parts of a battlespace to work together.

Biden transition team names White House tech officials

President-elect Joe Biden's transition team named two officials to oversee tech within the White House — and perhaps more broadly. David Recordon will be the director of technology in the White House’s Office of Management and Administration (OMA), and Austin Lin will serve as his deputy. While these roles will be housed in the OMA — typically an internal, behind-the-scenes White House office that oversees operations — it appears the incoming administration wants them to "play an important role in restoring faith across the federal government by encouraging collaboration to further secure American cyber interests." More on Biden's tech picks.

Forcepoint’s Sean Berg discusses changes in 2021 that leaders need to address in agencies’ cybersecurity strategies. At the top of the list is the continuous erosion of perimeter-based security, the increased adoption of mobile and cloud technologies and growing support to sustain a remote workforce.
