The Defense Department will develop its artificial intelligence technology through a framework it lays out in its Responsible AI Strategy. The department says it expects AI will change the way it fights wars. At SOF Week 2023, Francis Rose sat down with Snehal Antani, CEO of Horizon3.ai, and discussed the impact of AI on the defense sector. Antani highlighted two key aspects of AI: leveraging it to enhance decision-making and understanding, and the use of AI in offensive cyber operations. He emphasized the potential for adversaries to exploit AI’s speed and the urgent need for improved cyber resilience. Antani also stressed the importance of strategic and technique competition rather than relying solely on technological superiority. This interview offers crucial insights into the future of AI in defense, making it a must-watch for those interested in the intersection of technology and national security.
