  • Joint warfighting operations
  • Warfighter health
  • Business process transformation
  • Joint force protection
  • Joint logistics
  • Joint information warfare

In this course, you examine real-world AI use cases to understand how the power of these technology solutions are being applied across the Department’s mission initiatives. You also identify potential, future AI use cases for development and utilization in your own specific mission area.
