The Navy is drowning in data it doesn’t know what to do with

The service’s principal cyber advisor got candid about data struggles as it looks to adopt AI in operational plans.

“Transport is still that one thing that we kind of take for granted in this equation,” when talking about operationalizing data and artificial intelligence, Chris Cleary, the Navy’s principal cyber advisor, said Thursday. “The Navy doesn't drag [ethernet cables] behind it when it goes to sea. So, the availability of information, regardless of where it lives, is always a challenge.”
