By increasing data-use and literacy to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of decisions, readiness, mission operations, and cybersecurity, we are changing the Air Force’s culture to be a more collaborative organization. The Air Force is facing an ever-more disruptive battlefield (i.e., information warfare, malicious cyber activity, and political information subversion). Combating these threats requires rapid advancements in our data. To ensure we have the big data necessary to support AI autonomy, we need to take existing data stovepipes and change the culture toward visible and accessible data while still allowing for security and appropriate access.
