We are very proud to introduce a new podcast series called Artificial Intelligence on the Battlefield in partnership with Shephard Media. Welcome to Episode 1!

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is no longer the stuff of science fiction but part of everyday reality.

The promise and massive advantages of AI have led to doctrinal shifts and reimagining of systems and approaches for militaries around the world.

AI can now be found in a vast range of military technology, from autonomous systems to data-gathering sensors.

AI and machine learning applications are much quicker than humans, reducing user workload and enhancing productivity. This poses significant challenges and opportunities for militaries.

Over the course of three episodes, we are looking at the evolution of AI and machine learning in modern warfare.

We discuss the changing capabilities of the US and its allies, as well as the growing challenge from their peer competitors.

And we’ll consider areas such as information processing and human-machine teaming, asking what this will mean for warfighters in the coming decades.
