How Might AI Facilitate Uncertainty at the Edge of Warfare

  • Published

AI assistance can bring along its' own idiosyncrasies too since human biases can be 'baked' into AI systems from data used in its’ initial training. With edge assistance to warfighters there are prospects with means to embed AI capabilities on portable devices whether the device is connected wirelessly or not to tactical networks. In some cases, local devices can also be paired on-demand (to include drones collecting overhead video) for collecting and sending data to an AI-enabled portable device. Since electronic jamming can be expected at the edge, there will be the need for AI-enabled portable devices to operate offline, as necessary, from ad-hoc local or tactical network connections.
