UK to apply AI in warships - SAFETY4SEA

#artificialintelligence

Nine projects will share an initial £1 million to develop technology and innovative solutions to overcome increasing'information overload' faced by crews as part of DASA's Intelligent Ship: The Next Generation competition. This work will inform requirements then develop applications essential to the future force in an increasingly complex and AI driven environment. Although titled Intelligent Ship, a warship is just the prototype demonstrator for this competition. The project will inform development relevant to all defence equipment and military services.

How Artificial Intelligence Will Make Decisions In Tomorrow's Wars

#artificialintelligence

Yes, companies use AI to automate various tasks, while consumers use AI to make their daily routines easier. But governments–and in particular militaries–also have a massive interest in the speed and scale offered by AI. Nation states are already using artificial intelligence to monitor their own citizens, and as the UK's Ministry of Defence (MoD) revealed last week, they'll also be using AI to make decisions related to national security and warfare. The MoD's Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) has announced the initial injection of £4 million in funding for new projects and startups exploring how to use AI in the context of the British Navy. In particular, the DASA is looking to support AI- and machine learning-based technology that will "revolutionise the way warships make decisions and process thousands of strands of intelligence and data."

U.K. Invests in Revolutionary Artificial Intelligence Warships

#artificialintelligence

With an aim to help warship crews make quick decisions and process data efficiently, the U.K.'s Ministry of Defense recently announced contracts to use AI-based (artificial intelligence) technology in warships. According to a source, Defense and Security Accelerator (DASA) will be funding £1 million (around US$1.3 million) for AI contracts as part of its "Intelligent Ship – The Next Generation" competition, which is aimed at using innovative approaches for Human-AI and AI-AI teaming for various defense platforms like warships, aircraft, and land vehicles. James Heappey, U.K.'s Defense Minister, said, "The astonishing pace at which global threats are evolving requires new approaches and fresh thinking to the way we develop our ideas and technology. The funding will research pioneering projects into how AI and automation can support our armed forces in their essential day-to-day work." DASA's warship competition, in alliance with the Defense Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl), is intended to enhance the designs of future defense platforms by using advances in automation, autonomy, machine learning, and AI.
