Artificial Intelligence in National Security

Artificial Intelligence encompasses a wide-ranging network of engineering tasked with building smart machines and technologies capable of accomplishing tasks that normally require human intelligence or interaction. AI is an interdisciplinary multi-step science with various fashions. With advancements in machine learning and revolutions in deep learning; paradigm shifts are felt by military, political interest and world economies


The expeditious progress of AI makes it a distinguished necessary tool from the economic, political, and military standpoints. Embedded within the digital revolution, AI will help mediate the international order for many years to return, accentuating and accelerating the dynamics of an old world cycle within which technology and power reinforce each other. Transforming axis between territories, time and materials. While not mutually exclusive AI technologies include: computer vision, intelligent robotics, virtual agents, linguistic communication processing, machine learning and semantic technology.


The technologies of AI include, among others, machine learning, computer vision, intelligent robotics, biometrics, swarm intelligence, virtual agents, linguistic communication processing, and semantic technology. These technologies are after all not mutually exclusive.

How AI Works compared to Human Intelligence

Human cogitative intelligence normally follows a strict sequence known as the perception–cognition–action. This is the information processing loop, in that individuals distinguish something in the world operating around them. Personnel then think, weigh and act.


AI is created to do something similar, in that a computer senses the world around it, and then processes the incoming information through optimization and verification algorithms, with a choice of action made in a fashion similar to that of humans.


AI and weapons


Critical factors under mindful consideration within the deliberation over autonomous weapons is that the increasing; inability to disambiguate commercial drone autonomy from that of military UAVs. With the rapidly expanding commercial marketplace for both air and ground autonomous systems, there's evidence of some shifting in AI expertise from military to commercial enterprises.
