Data analysis and the closely related field of artificial intelligence are developing rapidly and are of great interest to the command and control field as they can offer desirable features such as automated handling of large data sets and models for interpreting new data. This report includes a scan of four selected sub-areas: prescriptive analysis, uncertainty management, explainability (XAI) and systems perspective. The report also contains an estimate of the future development of the sub-areas and a comparison with respect to their degree of maturity and relevance.
