During the open portion of the meeting, the Board will deliberate and propose observations on how to expand and advance innovation across the Department of Defense. These findings will be based upon discussions and preliminary recommendations from the October 2016 Public Meeting, and observations since that gathering. The Board is scheduled to vote on these recommendations. Specifically, the Board will deliberate and vote on each of the following interim recommendations: (1) Assess Cyber Security Vulnerabilities; (2) Catalyze Innovations in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning; (3) Align Risk and Incentives for Acquisition; (4) Sustain and Increase Support for Promising Approaches to Innovation; (5) Promote Access of DoD Computer Code; (6) Push Software Development to the ‘‘Front Line;’’ (7) Modernize Information Technology; and (8) Reward Bureaucracy Busting. The Board will also deliberate on a potential new recommendation to build a data center to collect all DoD data in a central location for ease of access and analysis. In addition, the Board will be briefed on the Secretary’s announcement to adopt the following three preliminary recommendations and comment on the Department’s draft implementation planning: (1) Make computer science a core competency of the Department by increasing the focus on recruiting talented computer scientists and software engineers into the military and civilian workforce; (2) invest more broadly in machine learning through targeted challenges, prize competitions, and a virtual center of excellence model that establishes stretch goals and incentivizes academic and private sector researchers to achieve them; and (3) create a DoD Chief Innovation Officer to act as a senior advisor to the Secretary of Defense and serve as a spearhead for innovation activities. Lastly, the Board will discuss potential recommendations and advice for the incoming Secretary of Defense to help keep DoD imbued with a culture of innovation to better protect the nation and its allies, and stay ahead of future threats. During the closed portion of the meeting, the Board will present more detailed discussions of their observations and recommendations to senior leaders from the Office of the Secretary of Defense.
