Defense Secretary James Mattis Envies Silicon Valley’s AI Ascent

“DEFENSE SECRETARY JAMES Mattis has a lot on his mind these days. North Korea, obviously. China’s expanding claims on the South China sea. Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria. And, closer to home, the Pentagon lagging behind the tech industry in leveraging artificial intelligence. Mattis admitted to that concern Thursday during the Silicon Valley leg of a West Coast tour that includes visits to Amazon and Google. When WIRED asked Mattis if the US had ambitions to harness recent progress in AI for military purposes like those recently espoused by China, he said his department needed to do more with the technology.”
