The Pentagon or US Department of Defense is working with artificial intelligence and believes that it can predict future events several days in advance.
The country’s Northern Command is working specifically with Global Information Dominance Experiments (GIDE), which combines data collected from devices, sensors, artificial intelligence, and data from the cloud to predict what events may unfold in the future, especially in the military field.
Science of the future, now.
While the concept seems straight out of science fiction, Northern Command Commander Glen VanHerck says this capability is already enabled by tools readily available to the Pentagon, The Drive notes.
In an experiment to the press, the institution focused mainly on the disputed advantage of logistics and information, two cornerstones of the new paradigm of war recently proposed by the vice president of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
“Machine learning and artificial intelligence can detect a change,” General VanHerck said. “We can set parameters to alert satellite sensors, taking a look at a specific location.”
It is part of “the ability to go much further than it is to be proactive. And I’m not talking about minutes and hours, I’m talking about days”.
“The ability to see days in advance creates space for decision. Decision space for me, as an operational commander, serves to potentially position forces and create deterrence options,” he said.
