AI Arms Race Watch Thread

Post by Yuli Ban »

Here's another dedicated thread that makes the dedicated mega-threads seem redundant on this new forum software.
The long-awaited AI arms race, talked about extensively in the 2010s!

Artificial intelligence arms race
A military artificial intelligence arms race is a competition or arms race between two or more states to have their military forces equipped with the best artificial intelligence (AI). Since the mid-2010s many analysts have noted the emergence of such a global arms race, the AI Arms Race, between great powers for better military AI, coinciding with and being driven by the increasing geopolitical and military tensions of the Second Cold War

The Pentagon Just Launched a New AI Initiative to Transform Global Warfare
In other words, the AI arms race is finally here
Imagine a nuclear arms race with few-to-no casualties and almost no threat of human extinction. Now replace nukes with unconscionable volumes of real-time data. Welcome to the future of global warfare.

The Pentagon just launched a new artificial intelligence (AI) initiative designed to enhance the curation process of massive amounts of tactical data, according to an announcement from Deputy Secretary of Defense Kathleen Hicks, in an initial report from National Defense.

In other words, the AI arms race is finally here.

AI will streamline the Pentagon's global command infrastructures
The new campaign, which is called the DoD AI and Data Acceleration initiative (ADA), is designed to move novel data and AI-linked concepts like joint all-domain command and control, also called JAD2, said Hicks in the report. "The ADA initiative will generate foundational capabilities through a series of implementation experiments or exercises, each one purposely building understanding through successive and incremental learning," she explained during the AI Symposium.
This feeds in well into the Sino-American Cold War thread
