The US military began to lag behind its main rivals, Russia and China, in the development and use of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies. Referring to the Foreign Relations publication on this subject, reported Inosmi Portal.
The authors of the article noted that although the USA is the world center for the development of AI, the country’s military is in no hurry to apply this knowledge and technology. Most of the new American projects in this direction failed for one reason or another.
As one of the examples of failure, journalists cited the Air Force project to create unmanned aerial vehicles X-45 and X-47, designed for reconnaissance and launching missile and bomb attacks. The devices began to be developed in 2003, but the project was canceled after some military leaders saw drones as a threat to F-35 fighters. A similar fate fell on the project of the Navy X-47V.
The authors of Foreign Affairs believe that the US military, which for many years saw itself as the world’s leading army, has lost its vigilance and has therefore ceded the leadership to other countries.
“Unless Washington does more to actively integrate AI into its military, it may be among the laggards,” Foreign Affairs says.
At the same time, the authors note that China and the Russian Federation are also actively developing the use of AI in the military and already have technologies that could threaten the United States.
