Artificial Intelligence in Aerospace and Defense - Thematic Research

AI is a potential game-changer for the conduct of warfare

Nearly 70 years since Alan Turing posed the question “Can machines think?”, artificial intelligence (AI) is finally beginning to have an impact on the global balance of power. Proponents of AI believe that it has the potential to transform the conduct of warfare. This kind of hype may not be entirely helpful, particularly as AI technology continues to experience growing pains, but it should not obscure the fact that AI is already an essential component of many countries’ national security.

In order to succeed, armed forces and defense contractors must make AI a core competency, as the alternative will be either stagnation or decline.

  • A new AI hub has been launched at the Dstl to help to improve the country’s capabilities in the application of AI-related technologies in order to meet defence and security-related challenges.
  • US DOD to utilize AI algorithms to enhance warfare capabilities.
  • As the use of AI in defense increases, so does the number of ethical questions surrounding its use as an autonomous weapon system.

GlobalData’s AI in Aerospace and Defense – Thematic Research report is an essential tool for debating the future impact of AI on the conduct of warfare, but it generally agrees on the fact that it has become far more than a fad. The potential of AI to be a game-changer, significantly increasing the speed and accuracy of data analysis and decision-making, pushes leading nations to pour resources into R&D in order to keep up.
