The US Military defense research program DARPA has called 40 scientists to Arizona to study methods of improving the use of artificial intelligence in warfare. After eliminating concepts that exceed current technical capabilities, the research program consulted with the people behind the more plausible scenarios.
These scientists estimate that artificial intelligence could prove to be a crucial advance in military technology, on par with the use of firearms and nuclear weapons. This bodes well for the rising number of people entering the field of electronic interface and simulation, and the nations which host these careers stand to gain a strategic military advantage.
