Artificial Technology is one such innovation that has influenced the operations of nearly all fields or sectors. It has been used by every country, in every department from higher to the lower level. One such highly reputed organization is the headquarters of defense in the United States i.e. Pentagon. They have started the use of this disruptive technology for hunting terrorists also.
AI on Battlefield
The drone facility aided by Artificial Intelligence has been in the recent news with its unique advantages. It has also gained a huge popularity around the world with its recent implementation in capturing terrorists at an undisclosed location somewhere in the middle east. It was a computer with some fancy special algorithms which helped analysts identify an object through a video feed. This video feed was broadcasted via a small ScanEagle drone above the battlefield.
Updation of Technology
This news has ensured and supported the use of AI in defense. The drone technology with Artificial Intelligence is improving with time. Initially, there were small drones with some low standard software but it is estimated that these drones would be quite helpful in the next war season with new software and hardware updates.
These updates in its technology would increase their precision and accurateness. Though this technology used by the Pentagon was started by a small team of only twelve people. With the success of their first project with Pentagon. They would be now expanding their project base and would work on receiving a constant video feed via automation of larger drones. They are expecting to enhance their algorithm and then update it in few more units of tactical drones for deployment.
The team is working hard by constantly updating their algorithms to increase the accuracy and features of the drone. They have an exhaustive structure to follow before deployment of any drone. They test the algorithms for hours in the real world scenario to refine and optimize the algorithms before it is deployed in the actual battlefield. The algorithms used by these drones are framed in a manner to easily identify vehicles, people, and installations. Although, a constant phase of corrections is conducted by the intel analyst to correct the identification of the machine.
This collaboration of human and machine is definitely deadly for any country. Implementation of human-machine teaming on the war field would revolutionize the militaries conduct their operations and fights. AI actually working with the defense on the battlefields has increased the efficiency of the military operations. With this human-machine interaction on the field, all of the defense departments are interested in introducing more of such technological driven gadgets for their next warship operations.
Though there are some critics of technological advancement who ponder on the thought that machines are replacing humans and they are taking over in every human field. Yet, there are people who believe that machines are an aid to human life, through which we can find an operational solution for an operational problem. This pentagon used technology has opened gates for many developers, scientists, and theorists to implement their ideas for real with Artificial Intelligence as their base.
