Cohen Inger is charged with the development of new technologies in the fields of artificial intelligence, deep learning, machine learning, data extraction, internet of things, and augmented reality for military use.
According to Cohen Inger, the key to using AI for military and civil purposes is data governance, which requires the secure transfer and storage of huge amounts of information. The Israeli military must recruit and train the next generation of data scientists in order to bring it to the forefront of operational AI technology, she said.
