Artificial Intelligence: Innovation at the Speed of Trust


John Stockton
Quantifind, Co-founder

John Stockton, Ph.D., is co-founder of Quantifind, where he leads efforts to adapt their technology for entity risk screening at banks to defense and law enforcement applications mapping malign activity from open source data. He helps guide Quantifind’s data scientists as they develop models to discover risk signals and integrate unstructured data into a comprehensive knowledge graph. As a Hertz fellow, his prior atomic physics research at Caltech and Stanford focused on signal extraction for quantum metrology.

He is a graduate of Deep Springs College, the University of Oxford (Clarendon Scholar; first class honours) and Singularity University, and holds degrees in data science, philosophy, political science and economics.


Artificial intelligence pushes the limits of known possibility. Yet, AI creates unique challenges for public servants as much as philosophers. While countries like China push forward with AI in military applications, democracies like the U.S. are working to balance the game-changing capabilities that AI provides with public concerns about when, how, and why AI-enabled tools are used for the country’s defense.

U.S. leaders are taking these concerns seriously and working diligently to address them. Learn how DIU and others are helping apply the DoD's Ethical Principles for AI to accelerate the adoption of AI for national security while ensuring responsible, lawful use of this promising technology.
