How AI Is Reshaping Contemporary Warfare

Artificial intelligence may only be a few years old, but the revolutionary technology is completely reshaping how countries wage war. A special report by Jennifer Griffin, chief national security correspondent on Fox News, has revealed the extent to which artificial intelligence has already reshaped contemporary warfare through several armed conflicts.

As modern warfare evolves alongside various technological advances, more and more countries are scrambling to incorporate AI into their war kits and stay ahead of current and potential adversaries.

Artificial intelligence began to gain prominence for its warfare capabilities during the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war as resource-strapped Ukrainians desperately scrambled to repel Russia’s military might. Leveraging AI-powered or guided tools allowed Ukraine to deal a significant blow against the Russian Navy in the early stages of the war and helped it to continually repel Russian infantry and even tanks through cheap, hastily constructed AI-guided drones.

The Russia-Ukraine conflict showed that large and incredibly expensive war machines such as tanks and warships can be a liability in a war involving artificial intelligence.

Software companies such as Palantir Technologies Inc. (NYSE: PLTR) and Govini are now making a killing modernizing some of the world’s most advanced weapon systems in this burgeoning AI age. The two companies were part of the companies that were present at the second edition of the annual AI Expo for National Competitiveness to display their high-tech weapons systems to the top brass in America’s military.

In an interview with Fox, Alex Karp, cofounder and CEO of Palantir, says preventing armed hostilities with China would require ramping up established companies such as Palantir as well as defense technology startups to help develop cutting-edge software systems that can frighten any adversary.

Palantir’s products are currently being used in both the Middle East and Ukraine, regions that have experienced armed conflicts in recent years.

According to Karp, Russia and China will win the race to develop and adopt artificial intelligence if the United States doesn’t claim the race. However, innovators will first have to overcome the inherent fear that is associated with artificial intelligence by many Americans.

Actual AI is still quite new and extremely limited, but the technology’s existence in popular media for several decades has resulted in the fear of humans losing control of AI and being eliminated from the “kill chain.” As a result, there have been increased calls for regulations that could potentially slow down advancements in the artificial intelligence field.

Karp explained that is crucial for the U.S. to maintain its lead in AI innovation to prevent any wrongdoing and to prevent adversaries from defining the world order.
