Autonomous Weapons in the Military - What's Possible and What's Legal

Autonomous Weapons in the Military – What’s Possible and What’s Legal

The military is always looking for ways to innovate its technology for weapons and vehicles, and it follows that AI and ML would become part of that work in the current decade. Currently, the Army is testing autonomous vehicles and aircraft for battlefield use. However, most AI applications for these vehicles do not have clearance to operate the weapons attached to them. 

Artificial Intelligence in the Food and Beverage Industry

AI in the Food and Beverage Industry – 3 Current Use-Cases

Although it's apparent that AI development is slow-moving in the industry, food and beverage companies may be able to use AI for food processing, in particular:

how self-driving cars work

How Self-Driving Cars Work – A Simple Overview

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) of the U.S. Department of Transportation recently released an overview report on the current state of self-driving technology.

Artificial Intelligence in the US Army - Current Initiatives

Artificial Intelligence in the US Army – Current Initiatives

The idea of using artificial intelligence (AI) in the military scares many people in the US, especially when it comes to the Army. The US Army typically operates on the ground, and so it may be uncomfortably closer to home for some people.

Artificial Intelligence in the Chinese Military - Current Initiatives

Artificial Intelligence in the Chinese Military – Current Initiatives

The Chinese military, or People's Liberation Army, is focusing heavily on artificial intelligence. However, China's race to develop "smarter," cheaper AI technology for the military is not linear, but instead a many-pronged strategy that involved the central government, domestic companies, and international trade. Gregory Allen of the Center for a New American Security published a report on China's AI strategy, in which he said:
Chinese military leaders increasingly refer to intelligent or “intelligentized” military technology as their confident expectation for the future basis of warfare. Use of the term “intelligentized” is meant to signify a new stage of military technology beyond the current stage based on information technology.
He also reported that “total Chinese national and local government spending on AI to implement these plans is not publicly disclosed, but it is clearly in the tens of billions of dollars.”

Artificial Intelligence in the US Air Force - Current Initatives

Artificial Intelligence in the US Air Force – Current Initiatives

Government contracts are notoriously hard to acquire. It takes many months of painstaking work to get through the gamut of regulations that weigh about 8.5 lb when printed out. Startups and small companies, including those developing artificial intelligence, often do not have the resources to compete for a share of this market. The US Air Force is changing that by streamlining the process in what it calls Pitch Days, the first of which was on March 6 and 7, 2019 in New York.

Artificial Intelligence in Medical Robotics - Current Applications and Possibilities

Artificial Intelligence in Medical Robotics – Current Applications and Possibilities

AI applications in healthcare are becoming more common for white-collar automation and diagnostics. However, medical robotics is an area that may be marginally underdeveloped. This is likely because of regulations concerning automated surgery.

How Machines and Robots Learn – the Progression of AI

How Robots Learn – an Interview with Jürgen Schmidhuber

This week, we speak with arguably one of the best-known folks in the domain of neural networks: Jurgen Schmidhuber. He's working on a lot of different applications now in heavy industry, self-driving cars, and other spaces.
