Air defense and missile defense systems
It is noteworthy that Bruce Getty, Assistant Secretary of the US Land Forces in the field of procurement and technology, had confirmed the intention of the United States to introduce artificial intelligence into its weapons systems, especially in air and missile defense systems.
In Pennsylvania at Kerning-Mellon University, an Artificial Intelligence Research Center has already been set up, under the direction of Andrew Moore that develops algorithms to detect and monitor terrorist threats, predict people's actions online, and more. Currently, he is interested in using artificial intelligence for military purposes, according to planet-today.
artificial intelligence projects
The Pentagon has participated in the creation of nearly 600 AI projects, costing more than $2 billion.
The Assistant Minister indicates that the infrastructure is now being built, which makes it possible to carry out study and research on the introduction of artificial intelligence in general. This requires the proper use of resources.
