[Strategic Notes] Artificial Intelligence : Applications and Challenges for the Armed Forces

[Abstract] Artificial Intelligence or AI can be defined as “a machine’s ability to replicate functions generally attributed to animals or humans, [in particular] recognising images and understanding videos, sounds and texts.

In concrete terms, AI is based on algorithms capable of analysing huge quantities of information very quickly or even in quasi real time. Using the power of modern computing, they can process quantities of information that the human brain cannot. To achieve optimal performances, these algorithms must be trained beforehand, requiring an immense amount of data. They may then become able to recognise relevant elements in a vast array of information (such as an object, correlations, a general trend, etc.)…
