Artificial Intelligence: The Profits and Perils for Military Operations and Decision Making

Thu., Oct. 25, 2018 | 12:15pm - 2:00pm

1 Brattle Square - Room 350

Speaker: Lt. Col. Wes Adams, Research Fellow, International Security Program

In his research, Lt. Col. Adams investigates the role of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the future of military decision making. Since the dawn of recorded warfare, battlefield commanders sought greater speed and insight over their enemy, trying to reduce what Clausewitz would famously declare the "fog and friction" of war. Over time, myriad technologies offered promises of battlefield omniscience but failed. Will AI be the final technology to deliver on the promise, or the next failed attempt at clearing the fog?
