Abstract: This research has the explicit goal of proposing a reusable, extensible, adaptable, and comprehensive advanced analytical modeling process to help the U.S. Navy in quantifying, modeling, valuing, and optimizing a set of nascent Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML) applications in the aerospace, automotive and transportation industries and developing a framework with a hierarchy of functions by technology category and developing a unique-to-Navy-ship construct that, based on weighted criteria, scores the return on investment of developing naval AI/ML applications that enhance warfighting capabilities. This current research proposes to create a business case for making strategic decisions under uncertainty. Specifically, we will look at a portfolio of nascent artificial intelligence and machine learning applications, both at the PEO-SHIPS and extensible to the Navy Fleet. This portfolio of options approach to business case justification will provide tools to allow decision-makers to decide on the optimal flexible options to implement and allocate in different types of artificial intelligence and machine learning applications, subject to budget constraints, across multiple types of ships. The concept of the impact of innovative technology on productivity has applicability beyond the Department of Defense (DoD). Private industry can greatly benefit from the concepts and methodologies developed in this research to apply to the hiring and talent management of scientists, programmers, engineers, analysts, and senior executives in the workforce to increase innovation productivity.
