Inspired by the 2020 DoD AI Education Strategy, the goal of the DAF/MIT Know-Apply-Lead (KAL) AI Education Research project is to help the USAF in its efforts to “educate, cultivate, and grow a world-class AI workforce.” By leveraging online and custom-built MIT courses and workshops, the KAL AI Education Research team investigates pedagogy, content/curriculum, educational platforms, and technical innovations. Research participants include DAF and Joint members, whose feedback helps inform published findings. Ultimately, these findings will help inform future business decisions for the DAF to ultimately advance the AI and training of an “elite and world-class AI ready force” of diverse roles and educational backgrounds at scale.
