Abstract
Artificial intelligence (Al) has become the technical focal point for advancing naval and Department of Defense (DoD) capabilities. Secretary of the Navy Carlos Del Toro listed AI first among his priorities for innovating U.S. naval forces. Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Michael Gilday listed it as his top priority during his Senate confirmation hearing. This focus is appropriate: ai/ offers many promising breakthroughs in battlefield capability and agility in decision making. Yet, the proposed advances come with substantial risk: automation-including AI- has persistent, critical vulnerabilities that must be thoroughly understood and adequately addressed if defense applications are to remain resilient and effective.
