US Army War College War Room: We Need An AI-Based Enemy Analysis Tool … Now!

US Army War College War Room: We Need An AI-Based Enemy Analysis Tool … Now!. “The U.S. Army does not have an automated enemy analysis tool at the tactical level. When maneuver battalion staffs plan operations, they manually analyze terrain and weather to predict enemy courses of action, considering how an enemy commander could most effectively fight. Staffs plan their own friendly course of action against this analysis. The process works much the same as it did 30 years ago. Staffs today have more intelligence products (imagery, UAS video, etc.), and computers help display enemy and friendly courses of action, but no enemy analysis tool analyzes terrain, weather, and enemy weapons and creates an optimal enemy course of action. Given recent breakthroughs in artificial intelligence—specifically the ability to win at abstract strategy games, this type of tool is now feasible. The Army needs it.”
