C3 AI announced that retired Gen. John E. Hyten has been appointed as special advisor to C3 AI CEO Thomas M. Siebel.
“General Hyten’s deep experience and insights into the role of enterprise AI in enhancing security of the U.S. and its allies has been tremendously valuable and I am looking forward to deepening our relationship as C3 AI expands its engagements with U.S. defense and intelligence agencies,” Siebel said.
Hyten first joined the C3 AI advisory board in June after retiring from 40 years of service in the U.S. Air Force, serving most recently as the vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
“I am excited to provide enhanced support for Tom and the entire C3 AI team as they lead the adoption and deployment of mission-critical AI across the nation,” Hyten said. “During my time on the advisory board, I have seen how impressive C3 AI’s technology is and how it can transform the defense industry, bolstering our national and economic security.”
Before the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Hyten led the U.S. Strategic Command from 2016 to 2019 and Air Force Space Command from 2014 to 2016.
“General Hyten has been an extremely valuable addition to the advisory board and as a strategic advisor he will continue to provide invaluable leadership in the adoption and implementation of enterprise AI capabilities to the defense community and the U.S. government, underscoring C3 AI’s commitment to this critical sector,” said retired Lt. Gen. Ed Cardon, former commander of the U.S. Army Cyber Command, and C3 AI advisory board member.
