Recently, the Department of Defense’s Chief Digital and Artificial Intelligence Office (CDAO) unveiled a new digital learning platform in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Horizon. This platform, known as “Digital-on-Demand,” is designed to educate DoD personnel on AI capabilities and other advanced technologies.

The introduction of the MIT Horizon continuous learning library through the “Digital-on-Demand” platform is aimed at accelerating AI knowledge within the DoD enterprise. The CDAO has made this learning system accessible to all DoD military and civilian employees, offering them various user-friendly viewing options.

Craig Martell, the Chief Digital and AI Officer at DoD, emphasized the significance of the “Digital-on-Demand” initiative in enhancing understanding of AI tools and emerging technologies among DoD personnel. This tool not only showcases the future implications of these advancements for the DoD workforce but also facilitates their integration across the Department.

The availability of the MIT Horizon online software on “Digital-on-Demand” provides valuable learning resources on topics such as big data analytics, 5G, edge computing, conceptual AI, and the internet of things. This initiative aims to establish a shared language and comprehension of AI and emerging technologies to promote better collaboration throughout the Department.

Kathleen Kennedy, the top director of MIT Horizon, highlighted the importance of fostering a cohesive understanding of AI and cutting-edge technologies across the entire DoD workforce. The formal launch of the “Digital-on-Demand” platform follows a successful soft launch to Special Operations Command and Central Command personnel earlier this year.

Additionally, the CDAO conducted a pilot training program in August 2022, involving approximately 1,200 military members. The feedback from participants indicated a significant expansion of understanding regarding AI, with 91 percent finding the material informative and 97 percent deeming it relevant to their roles.

To access the new Digital-on-Demand education system, users can visit digitalu.ac.mil, click on “Register,” create an account using a “.mil” email address, and enter “MIT Horizon” to begin their learning journey.
