Autonomy aficionado. Stone's work in autonomy science has provided the foundation for the Defense Department's Third Offset Strategy, which focuses on man-machine teaming. Such strategies seek to ensure the technical superiority of the U.S. military. He also developed DOD's Tri-service Autonomy Strategic Roadmap, which accelerated critical research into autonomous technology. He zeroed in on DOD's requirement for effective verification and validation methods, and in 2015, the V&V Working Group published a revolutionary approach to testing autonomous technology. Partners in industry and academia have adopted the framework, which has boosted corporate investment -- a key source of innovation for DOD.
