Russia’s Kalashnikov arms manufacturer is planning to build military defense systems with artificial intelligence that implies weapons’ self-learning, Industrial Director of the Rostec Conventional Armament, Ammunition and Special Chemistry Cluster Sergei Abramov said Wednesday.
The need, prospects and expediency of creating and adapting artificial intelligence systems for military use do not evoke any doubts and all the leading countries are taking efforts for introducing artificial intelligence into existing and future weapons, he was quoted as saying by TASS at the conference tiled: "Digital Industry of Industrial Russia 2018."
"The developers of military hardware consider this task largely as an engineering effort: to create the corresponding software and hardware meeting the Defense Ministry’s requirements. In this regard, we should note the expertise accumulated by the Kalashnikov Group that has achieved certain successes in this sphere," Abramov said, without specifying the weapon systems.
While a large number of weapons are in service today (for example, short-range air defense and anti-ballistic missile defense systems) operating in the automated mode from detecting to destroying targets, "these systems can hardly be called artificial intelligence because they are not self-learning systems: they strictly follow algorithms embedded by developers," the Rostec official added.
Russia's advanced multirole Su-35 fighter aircraft is equipped with an 'artificial intelligence' unit that helps the aircraft to lock the specific target for destruction by a certain kind of weapon system. The general director of Rostech state corporation, Sergei Chemezov was quoted as saying by
Russia is developing third generation robots that need no human assistance, navigate on their own, recognize objects on video images, conduct reconnaissance, and communicate with drones and other robotic systems. “A fundamental differentiator of the 3rd generation robotics compared to existing robots is the ability to operate with no human input”, Alexander Kalinin, Head, Innovative Development Dept
HRL Laboratories is testing an unmanned aircraft with a new processor that essentially acts like a brain, learning and acting on its own dubbed neuromorphic chip, according to Gizmodo reports. The research is funded by Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
The US Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency is seeking to automate air-to-air combat, enabling reaction times at machine speeds and freeing pilots to concentrate on the larger air battle. No ArtificiaI Intelligence (AI) currently exists that can outduel a human pilot in a fighter jet in a high-speed, high-G dogfight, a DARPA release said
The US Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has announced a more than $2 Billion investment into “AI Next”, the future wave of artificial intelligence technologies to create collaborative partnerships between humans and machines. Under AI Next, key areas to be explored may include automating critical DoD business processes, such as security clearance vetting in a week or accrediting software systems in one day for operational deployment; improving the robustness and reliability of AI systems; enhancing the security and resiliency of machine learning and AI technologies; reducing power, data, and performance inefficiencies; and pioneering the next generation of AI algorithms and...
Raytheon announced Tuesday that the firm is developing a first of its kind neural network that explains itself, under the Defense Research Project Agency's (DARPA) Explainable Artificial Intelligence program (XAI). The XAI program aims to create a suite of machine learning techniques that produce more explainable models while maintaining a high level of performance
