Lt. Gen. Jack Shanahan, Director of Pentagon’s Joint Artificial Intelligence Center, Inducted Into 2019 Wash100 for Military AI Tech Adoption Leadership
Executive Mosaic is honored to unveil Air Force Lt. Gen. Jack Shanahan, director of the Department of Defense’s Joint Artificial Intelligence Center, as an inductee into the 2019 edition of the Wash100 — Executive Mosaic’s annual selection of the most influential voices in the government contracting arena — for his leadership in accelerating the implementation of artificial intelligence-driven tools and activities in the joint force.
Shanahan assumed his current position in December 2018 after he concurrently served as director of defense intelligence for warfighter support and Algorithmic Warfare Cross-Functional Team, also known as Project Maven.
In a keynote speech at the Potomac Officers Club Future of Algorithmic Warfare Forum in July last year, Shanahan described his job as “understanding where the DoD needed to go with artificial intelligence and getting us to the next step.”
“The future of human-machine interaction lies in people leveraging AI capabilities to maximize efficiencies across the government and industry,” he said at the event.
This honor marks his first Wash100 win.
