Join Barton Poulson for an in-depth discussion in this video The challenges of military AI, part of AI Accountability Essential Training.
- [Instructor] Artificial intelligence anywhere faces…a number of different challenges…but artificial intelligence…in the military faces some especially significant ones.…They might be technical, or ethical, or even social.…And let's talk about each of those.…The technical challenges of military AI are significant.…AI and machine learning work by analyzing patterns…in existing data and matching new data to those patterns.…That works in a lot of situations.…Again, if you are classifying spam email or pictures…of cats, it works great, but warfare is built on surprise.…
An enemy is going to try not…to use the same approach they've used before,…and so you constantly will have novelty.…Now, what this means is…that AI can say whether a particular observation is unusual,…it can say I don't really know what's going on here,…but it may not be able to provide more information…and match it up to some strategy…that you know how to respond to,…and military scenarios may not…allow enough time for adequate…human-in-the-loop decision-making.…
