Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a fast-developing field of technology with possibly substantial implications for national security. Defense departments of countries spanning US, European Union, Russia and China are financing the development of AI applications for a range of military functions. AI research is underway in the fields of intelligence collection and analysis, logistics, cyber operations, information operations, command and control, and in a variety of semi-autonomous and autonomous vehicles. Already, AI has been incorporated into military operations in Iraq and Syria.
