When it comes to sheer military might, it is safe to say the United States Military is among the strongest armed forces in the world. It surpasses every other major superpower when it comes to military funding, technology, and power projection. However, unbeknownst to most people, there is a silent arms race happening right now for a technology that has the potential to change the status quo of military supremacy. That technology is artificial intelligence (A.I.).
A.I., also known as machine learning, is the use of computer systems developed to perform tasks where human intelligence is normally necessary. Modern A.I. is capable of understanding human speech, reading comprehension, visual perception, decision-making, and much more. Some A.I. systems are even capable of learning by interpreting data and can rewrite their algorithms in real time to become more efficient. A.I. has a wide range of applications and can be implemented in many industries. Some examples of these applications include smart assistants, autonomous vehicles, data analysis, medical diagnosis, and robotics.
Military organizations around the world have recognized how A.I. can be an asset to their armed forces, which, in turn, has led to the development of weapon systems that utilize A.I. technology. Examples of these systems are lethal autonomous weapons such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) and autonomous turrets. While most of the focus has been placed on autonomous weapons, there are other ways A.I. can be used in a military environment. Other possible applications include improved training systems for pilots, surveillance data analysis, and logistical support.
While these military applications seem impressive, do they justify a race among nations for A.I. superiority? According to a study done by the Belfer Center, A.I. is a transformative technology, comparable to nuclear technology or biotechnology.
