Army Futures Command yesterday announced Col. Doug Matty as the new director of the service's artificial intelligence task force, according to a press release.

Matty was sworn into his new position during a ceremony which included Gen. John Murray, AFC commanding general, and officials from Carnegie Mellon University on Aug. 28.

Matty will serve as the "leader of strategic AI capabilities for the U.S. Army," the release states. He previously served as the deputy director of the AI Task Force and as former deputy director of U.S. Cyber Command's Capabilities Development Group.

The AI Task Force was formed in 2018 through a partnership with AFC and Carnegie Mellon University and was led by Brig. Gen. Matt Easley.
