“Who rules AI will rule the world.” So said Vladimir Putin in a 2017 speech to Russian students. He’s not the only one who believes this; nations around the world, from China to the U.A.E. to the U.S., are racing to be the leader in artificial intelligence research and technology, for both civilian and military applications. This approach hardly seems unfounded, either--the edge AI provides in both war and peace has the potential to decide the shape of the international stage in the coming future. Where does this AI “space race” currently stand? How will it change the future of warfare? And how will it change the future of the globe? This session will discuss who will lead in the race for artificial intelligence in Defense and National Security, and why is it of utmost importance.
