Artificial Intelligence for the Warfighter: How Emerging Technologies are Changing Decision-Making

- Sun Tzu

“Speed is the essence of war."

In an era of exponentially expanding data, the challenge of collecting and distilling information into actionable insights has become exceedingly daunting. The amount of information in the world is increasing far more quickly than our ability to process it; there is simply too much data for humans to analyze in order to keep pace with mission demands. To better anticipate the multitude of complex adversary threats, analysts must be armed with the processing speeds that modern technology provides. New advances in automation and artificial intelligence (AI) are increasingly unburdening analysts and providing greater visibility for the warfighter, but questions remain: how can we ensure that analytic outputs are accurate and contextualized to the mission? And what does ideal human-machine collaboration look like?
