ONR defines the technology of Artificial Intelligence (AI), at a minimum, as an algorithm that exhibits some or all of the characteristics of perception, reasoning, learning, and action; one that is capable of operating, and that serves humans involved in military operations and The Naval Research Enterprise (NRE).

The NRE has been challenged to assess the potential for the application of AI and related technologies in supporting Navy and Marine Corps operations.  ONR is proposing to hold a Summit of technology developers, researchers and thought leaders working on AI, or having applications in which AI technologies are, or could be, transformational. 

Information received by ONR over the course of the NRE Applied AI (A2I) Summit will be used to determine industry and academia capabilities and thus help validate the Government’s requirements for future solicitations. Information from this Summit could be used to establish promising areas of technology development and investment under the ONR Innovative Naval Capability (INC) and/or Future Naval Capability (FNC) Program. In addition to these programs, the Government may issue one or more Broad Agency Announcements (BAAs) to select technologies for development addressing operational requirements. However, this RFI itself is not soliciting proposals for funded research and development.
