CDAO’s Alpha-1 Portfolio Propels Pentagon’s Advancements in AI Technology

Navy Capt. Xavier Lugo, head of the Department of Defense Chief Digital and Artificial Intelligence Office’s Task Force Lima, recently discussed the significance of Alpha-1 in advancing artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies. According to a report by Federal News Network, Lugo highlighted that Alpha-1 provides a foundation for such development with its set of enterprise tools and capabilities.

Lugo explained that Alpha-1 is gaining traction in supporting AI and ML scaffolding, offering features such as data labeling as a service, test and evaluation, and federated model catalogs. Data labeling was identified as the initial capability provided by Alpha-1 to DOD services and components. Lugo pointed out that there was a significant need for data labeling across different department offices, which Alpha-1 aimed to address.

Previously, program offices had their own data labeling services, but they often came with limitations and restrictions. Through Alpha 1’s data labeling offerings, projects such as the U.S. Navy’s Project Harbinger, the Coast Guard’s maritime object detection, and the Marine Corps’ Smart Sensor program have been supported and enhanced.
