An in-depth assessment of innovations in military information technology informs hypothetical outcomes for artificial intelligence adaptations
In the coming decades, artificial intelligence (AI) will revolutionize the way we live and the way we wage war. Military organizations that best innovate and adapt to this AI revolution will gain significant advantages over rivals. Great powers such as the United States, China, and Russia are investing in novel sensing, reasoning, and learning technologies that will alter how militaries observe, orient, decide, and act in relation to the enemy and environment. This will fundamentally change how we conceptualize the national security enterprise.
In Information in War: Military Innovation, Battle Networks, and the Future of Artificial Intelligence, Benjamin M. Jensen, Christopher Whyte, and Scott Cuomo provide a deeper understanding of the relationship between information, organizational dynamics, and military power. They analyze past examples of successes and failures with innovations in military information technologies and demonstrate how militaries can avoid common obstacles to achieve effective adoption.
Information in War concludes with four hypothetical outcomes of how the US military may use AI by 2040 to help imagine and prepare for a range of possible futures.
