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. The US government largely ignored this widespread fear by pursuing an aggressive […]

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 […]

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 […]

Artificial Intelligence for Military Logistics - Current Applications

Artificial Intelligence for Military Logistics – Current Applications

Logistics in the military encompasses more functions than most people realize. In modern warfare, that means large quantities of data to sift through in order to make decisions regarding supply, transport, communications, and so on. Using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) in one or more areas in logistics could help speed up that […]

AI for Homeland Security - Current Applications

AI at the US Department of Homeland Security – Current Projects

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) routinely handles large amounts of data. Its mandate is to “keep America safe,” and that encompasses many fronts. This includes anything to do with potential threats to the nation, ranging from border security to cybersecurity, so “big data” would be an understatement. Using machine learning and artificial intelligence technology […]

Big Data in the Military - Intelligence Gathering and AI

Big Data in the Military – Preparing for AI

Large volumes of data, managed properly, are a boon for many industries, including the military. It would not be possible to mount effective military operations without knowing the when, where, and what in deploying resources.

Artificial Intelligence at the FBI – 6 Current Initiatives and Projects

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has figured in many works of fiction as well as documentaries because what they do fascinates people.

Predictive Analytics in the Military - Current Applications

Predictive Analytics in the Military – Current Applications

The military has always been at the forefront of advanced technology. Some of the most important applications we use every day, such as the Internet, were developed by or for military use. That said, the military is adopting predictive analytics at what seems to be a slower pace than industry, although there are likely applications for the […]

Facial Recognition in the Military – Current Applications

The US Department of Defense’s DARPA has a plan to invest as much as $2 billion in artificial intelligence research and development in the next 5 years. This is on top of the $2 billion the federal government has already spent on AI-based technology R&D. There is undoubtedly much interest in the US for plumbing […]
