Royal Navy to explore artificial intelligence use in battle threat assessment
“Britain’s Royal Navy is to use artificial intelligence situational awareness software to help humans assess threats in a maritime combat system demonstrator.
The system named STARTLE continuously monitors and evaluates potential threats using a combination of artificial intelligence techniques.
It is inspired by the way the human brain works, emulating the mammalian conditioned-fear response mechanism. Rapidly detecting and assessing potential threats, the software significantly augments human operator situational awareness in complex environments, the company behind the system said.”
