After roughly 15 years in the Army, Christopher Marks enrolled as a PhD student at MIT. "He was interested in questions of national security," said his adviser, Tauhid Zaman, the KDD Career Development Professor in Communications and Technology at MIT Sloan. The two of them began discussing lines of inquiry that best integrated Marks' research ideas with Zaman's expertise in social networks.

The successes of major Chinese technology companies, notably Baidu Inc., Alibaba Group and Tencent Holding Ltd.--and even a number of start-ups--have demonstrated the dynamism of these private-sector efforts in artificial intelligence. From speech recognition to self-driving cars, Chinese research is cutting edge. Although the military dimension of China's progress in artificial intelligence has remained relatively opaque, there is also relevant research occurring in the People's Liberation Army research institutes and the Chinese defense industry. Looking forward, the PLA anticipates that the advent of artificial intelligence will fundamentally change the character of warfare, ultimately resulting in a transformation from today's "informationized" (信息化) ways of warfare to future "intelligentized" (智能化) warfare.


China May Soon Surpass America on the Artificial Intelligence Battlefield

#artificialintelligence

The rapidity of recent Chinese advances in artificial intelligence indicates that the country is capable of keeping pace with, or perhaps even overtaking, the United States in this critical emerging technology. The successes of major Chinese technology companies, notably Baidu Inc., Alibaba Group and Tencent Holding Ltd.--and even a number of start-ups--have demonstrated the dynamism of these private-sector efforts in artificial intelligence. From speech recognition to self-driving cars, Chinese research is cutting edge. Although the military dimension of China's progress in artificial intelligence has remained relatively opaque, there is also relevant research occurring in the People's Liberation Army research institutes and the Chinese defense industry. Evidently, the PLA recognizes the disruptive potential of the varied military applications of artificial intelligence, from unmanned weapons systems to command and control. Looking forward, the PLA anticipates that the advent of artificial intelligence will fundamentally change the character of warfare, ultimately resulting in a transformation from today's "informationized" (信息化) ways of warfare to future "intelligentized" (智能化) warfare.
