Abstract : This report discusses candidate Artificial Intelligence (AI) tasks for initiating AI projects at DTIC, several configuration issues, and start-up costs of expertise and equipment. Configuration issues concern Mission, organization, and system. The DTIC AI mission will focus on prototyping practical applications of high value to the DTIC user community. DTIC has the choice of establishing a wholly self-contained AI activity, or participating in, contributing to, and sharing the resources of the Defense Applied Information Technology Center (DAITC). Coordinating AI functionality will be necessary for incorporating AI development activities and implementations on the DoD Gateway Information System (DGIS), the core computer system to the DAITC. Workstation consultant mode and backend storage are two options for production programs management. Two cost projection models are given as start-up costs for an AI environment. The costs are for expertise and hardware/software. AI expertise and AI ware are mutually dependent for a strong AI environment.
