The US Army demands dominance in warfare on a global scale, and its top brass recognize that other nations are going to invest in Artificial Intelligence in their weapons and communications systems. This might be billed to Congress as "The Terminator," but would more realistically affect military logistics and computer systems into which problematic and encrypted algorithms are secretly installed.

Weapons systems that benefit from artificial intelligence include telemetry devices and a vast array of things that can affect military performance without the need for advanced weapons hardware on the battlefield.
