Between Artificial Intelligence and Military Intelligence

Between Artificial Intelligence and Military Intelligence

Editor: Philip Ragner | Tactical Investor

We cover multiple arrays of topics for one simple reason. The world is interconnected, and it is not only financial factors that drive the markets. Geopolitics is another major driving force behind the markets. Crowd Psychology dictates that if you focus on the tree, you will forget that the tree is part of a forest and in doing so you will miss the bigger picture. For example, George Soros is behind the surge in fake stories, the massive Anti-Trump riots and the funding of plethora of revolutions that seek to change the existing regime.  Having the ability to cross analyse multiple factors with an open mind provides you with a much clearer picture of what to expect from the financial markets. On that note, we think you might find the following story of interest:

No one can claim to have mastered the markets fully and anyone that does lay claim to such a title should be avoided like the plague.   For example, after QE all the rules changed and many time-tested indicators simply ceased to work because the operating environment had changed forever. The markets were suddenly hit with a force that they had never been hit with before.  A fed that was determined to destroy any shred of free market forces left in the market.  This surprised everyone, and it even caught us off guard initially.  Many so-called experts refuse to accept that they made a mistake or could be wrong. Bull Markets Vs Bear Markets & Arrogance

As was clearly stated by Vladimir Putin on September 4, 2017: “Whichever country leads the way in Artificial Intelligence research will be the ruler of the world.”

According to Thomas Kuhn’s old, but still useful, epistemological model, every change of the scientific paradigm – rather than the emergence of new material discoveries – radically changes the visions of the world and hence strategic equilibria.

So what exactly is Artificial Intelligence? It consists of a series of mathematical tools, but also of psychology, electronic technology, information technology and computer science tools, through which a machine is taught to think as if it were a human being, but with the speed and security of a computer.

As can be easily imagined, this happens rarely in a complex system with a high rate of variation over time and space, as is exactly the case in war clashes.

Just think about the intelligence reserved for the Chiefs of Staff, which obviously no one ever feeds into any machine to “run” it.

Due to the large amount of data to be checked and translated, his mathematics required an electromechanical machine, a sort of computer which was in fact created at Bletchley Park, Britain’s codebreaking center, with the technologies of the time: vacuum valves, copper wires and electric engines.

Is the dawn of artificial intelligence and autonomous weapons resulting in a new revolution in military affairs? That’s the question posed by a recent article by Frank Hoffman. As with previous such revolutions, technology is not the sole determinant of large shifts in the way military organizations successfully conduct operations.

Military institutions, policymakers, and intelligence agencies are feeling the competitive pressure to expand the use of military (and broader national security) applications of artificial intelligence. Both the U.S. and Chinese governments have released long-term strategies to lead the world in the development and employment of artificial intelligence.

To begin intellectually equipping their personnel for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, military organizations should start providing a baseline level of education in artificial intelligence.

Military organizations will therefore need more than just deep technical experts in the development of algorithms and the design of artificial intelligence for military systems.

As militaries seek to develop a baseline literacy in AI to supplement the knowledge of experts and contractors who design algorithms, reading lists, residential programs, and online skills as well as academic partnerships and conferences will be useful. Existing professional military education programs must be adapted to deliver this higher standard of technical literacy.

This new age of autonomous systems, and the resulting new organizations and warfighting concepts, will demand that a larger percentage of military personnel are literate in artificial intelligence and other advanced technologies. Full Story
