“We have learned much in the last year of bitter fighting — how innovative minds and advanced technology, in particular software and artificial intelligence, can be paired in ways that allow David to beat a modern-day Goliath.
How our approach to any conflict in the Pacific is being foreshadowed on the eastern plains of Europe. And how private industry has a foundational responsibility to partner with government to defend democratic institutions and the national interest.”
Destruction and injustice can take many forms that touch an entire society and cross borders. But we have also witnessed the potential for software to make a positive impact on the battlefield and beyond.”
“We have seen artificial intelligence transformed from coddled experiments in the research lab to resilient models that provide a real advantage on the battlefield.
The ingenuity and bravery of the Ukrainian people is now showing the world how advanced technology can be harnessed to provide modern militaries with a new advantage: a decision advantage.
The ability to outperform your adversary in terms of the scale and speed with which you can make decisions informed by data is a key part of how Ukrainians are beating back the Russian invaders, who are starved of data and analytically sluggish.
One year in, we now see that those with the best trained artificial intelligence models can outmaneuver adversaries who lack them by using data collection, decision-making, and importantly, human action.”
