Opinion/Middendorf: Artificial intelligence and the future of warfare


By J. William Middendorf J. William Middendorf, who lives in Little Compton, served as Secretary of the Navy during the Ford administration. His recent book is "The Great Nightfall: How We Win the New Cold War."Thirteen days passed in October 1962 while President John F. Kennedy and his advisers perched at the edge of the nuclear abyss, pondering their response to the discovery of Russian missiles in Cuba. Today, a president may not have 13 minutes.

Artificial intelligence and national security: Integrating online data


Artificial intelligence (AI) is now a major priority for government and defense worldwide -- one that some countries, such as China and Russia, consider the new global arms race. AI has the potential to support a number of national and international security initiatives, from cybersecurity to logistics and counter-terrorism. The overwhelming amount of public data available online is crucial for supporting a number of these use cases. These sources include unstructured social media data from both fringe and mainstream platforms, as well as deep and dark web data. While valuable, these sources are not always easily accessible through commercial threat intelligence platforms.
