Human Machine Teaming: The Intelligence Cycle Reimagined

Arlington, VA | January 22, 2024 — The Mitchell Institute for Aerospace Studies announces a new entry in its Forum Paper series, Human Machine Teaming: The Intelligence Cycle Reimagined, by Lt Gen Dash Jamieson, USAF (Ret.).

As the U.S. intelligence community (IC) plays its role in assessing both opportunities and challenges related to the problem of “too much information,” it must question some of its most foundational elements. Specifically, the relevance of today’s IC and the current intelligence cycle that served as a gold standard for several decades requires rethinking, if not reinvention. The community must think through what artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML) paired with human machine teaming (HMT) will do to the intelligence cycle. There is an urgent need to identify ways to rapidly adapt now and move forward. This thought piece proposes a framework for a digital HMT-driven intelligence cycle.

The Forum presents innovative concepts and thought-provoking insight from aerospace experts here in the United States and across the globe. As a means to afford publishing opportunities for thoughtful perspectives, Mitchell Institute’s Forum provides high visibility to writing efforts on issues spanning technology and operational concepts, defense policy and strategy, and unique interpretations of changing geopolitical relationships.
