Thanks GarryB. I was referring to the number of diverse applications for AI in defence. (1)
AI is expected to be particularly useful in intelligence(ISR) due to the large data sets available for analysis(2)
Logistics - The U.S Air Force is testing an AI-enabled approach that tailors maintenance schedules to the needs of individual aircraft.(3)
Cyberspace Operations - AI-enabled tools,can be trained to detect anomalies in broader patterns of network activity(4)
Using AI for autonomous vehicles. (5)
Autonomous Weapon Systems - AI based weapon systems capable of independently identifying a target and employing an onboard weapon system to engage and destroy it with no human interaction. These weapons require a computer vision system and advanced machine learning algorithms to classify an object as hostile, make an engagement decision, and guide a weapon to the target.
