Duties & Responsibilities for AI on the battlefield: Thoughts

There’s some thought out there on how AI can make armed groups more effective, but what problems will it help us solve? And what’s the right way to use it?

Chris Sauceda and I wrote a short piece on the Mad Scientist blog about how to think about AI on the battlefield. Some of the most successful commanders in history had an all-knowing chief of staff that made command and control possible in complex situations – and we recommend that the Army consider AI in this light.

Tyler Cowen’s thoughts on how to employ AI in direct competition are important going forward, and we address that briefly too.

Ian Kersey and Luke Shabro at Mad Scientist helped out a lot – their blog is probably the best spot to find original thinking on emerging tech in land forces contexts.
