The U.S. is in a struggle to maintain its dominance in air, land, sea, space, and cyberspace over countries with capabilities increasingly on par in all domains with that of the U.S. In addition, information (in all its forms) is the center of gravity of a broad set of challenges faced by the United States, including information operations, cyber information warfare, foreign hostile influence, intelligence operations, influence warfare, disinformation, proxy warfare, and the perennial threat of terrorism, foreign and domestic.
Information, then, is the clear strategic vector of value creation for the emergence of applied technologies to enable operational innovation. For the U.S., the desired outcome is continued dominance for another American Century. For the Chinese, military capabilities usher in the dawn of a new technological superiority and, as a result, geopolitical and military dominance on the world stage.
The Department of Justice is investigating whether artificial intelligence monitoring could be used as a valuable tool to prevent suicide and crime within US prisons. A House of Representatives panel has requested that a study be conducted on the use of AI to analyze prisoners’ phone calls and pick up
Researchers have allegedly developed a new algorithm that could help self-driving cars navigate narrow and crowded streets. Drivers are able to complete this task, however, not always without close calls and frustration. This means that programming an autonomous vehicle to do the same without a human driver or knowledge of
Ford has announced its plans to launch an autonomous vehicle fleet with Lyft and Argo AI will occur by the end of the year. The group will begin testing self-driving vehicles with safety drivers this year in Miami, one of many steps in its process to launching the fleet. The
A recently released documentary pertaining to the late Anthony Bourdain and his life has sparked a debate over the film’s use of artificial intelligence. The AI was used to stitch together voices quotes by the late celebrity and bring his voice back to life for the documentary. The film is
Japanese astronomers have developed a new artificial intelligence tool that removes noise in astronomical data, revealing the actual shape of the universe. The noise is a result of random variations in galaxy shapes, according to the astronomers. The tool underwent extensive training and testing on mock data created by supercomputer
China says its fighter pilots are battling AI aircraft in simulated dogfights, and humans aren’t the only ones learning
In China, fighter pilots have been battling aircraft piloted by artificial intelligence in simulated dogfights that seek to boost pilot combat skills, according to Chinese media. People’s Liberation Army Air Force brigade flight team leader and recognized fighter ace Fang Guoyu was allegedly recently shot down by a Chinese-developed AI
South Korea has announced plans to increase its unmanned presence in the land that divides the Korean peninsula, stating that the moving robots will be part of an artificial intelligence-based surveillance system. The Korean Defense Acquisition Program Administration, or DAPA, created a $2.5 million contract to deploy the robots and
According to a new study, artificial intelligence machines can now create computer microchips in just six hours that perform better or just as well as those designed by human experts. Therefore, AI can devise blueprints thousands of times faster than humans. The new research was conducted by Google and is
As agencies begin to implement more artificial intelligence systems and other advanced technologies into their operations, the struggle has shifted from the actual purchase of the tech to being able to effectively secure the technologies. Jessica Clark, a Homeland Security Department procurement official stated that although the department is able
