Call for Papers – Special Issues

The Military Operations Research (MOR) Journal invites contributed papers for a special issue on Artificial Intelligence advances, applications, challenges, policy, and history of interest to the MOR Journal community. The deadline for submission is December 2020, and the below Call for Papers document provides additional details.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) for our purposes are technologies and algorithms that learn and adapt by interacting with data to perform tasks according to underlying human intelligence patterns in the data. DoD and Government AI investment indicates increasing interest in emergent AI applications to gain a competitive edge. This special issue will highlight technical AI breakthroughs across the government-industry spectrum while drawing attention to current and future AI policies as leadership gains deeper understanding of AI technologies.

The strategic benefits of AI applications are expanding as rapidly as the technologies and algorithms are evolving. This special issue will serve as a resource for military leaders to better grasp the impacts and challenges of military AI applications as perceived from the national security and homeland defense community. Editorially, we are taking a broad approach, with opportunities to focus on AI-enabled decision making, human-machine interface, cloud computing, machine learning, emergent algorithms, semantics and heuristics, and tactical applications. This special issue also seeks papers on AI history, military or otherwise, and potentials for future AI policy and its impact.
