Do you realize how many times technology has changed our lives? Everything that surrounds us is practically the result of technology. We are not going to complain about it considering all the good it brings us in our daily life. Moreover, we can only be delighted by its enormous progress these last years, especially in the field of the army.
An infinite field of possibilities
Artificial intelligence, which is the greatest innovation of science in my opinion, keeps on revolutionizing everything. Recently, the very first flight of the very first Boeing military drone was launched. The loyal Wingman is its name. Equipped with artificial intelligence, it is obviously capable of making decisions in times of crisis. No more need for men on the ground then; well not so much anymore.
The Loyal Wingman represents a vast field of possibilities for Australia. Indeed, this drone can be used in many situations ranging from warfare to humanitarian aid in the search for survivors. It can also be used for reconnaissance or espionage missions without endangering the lives of pilots. A way to preserve the lives of these brave people who have decided to put their lives at the service of the army.
Integration of AI into combat drones
In the perpetual search for better responsiveness in times of crisis, more and more military projects involve some use of artificial intelligence. With this in mind, the Americans have also launched projects to design autonomous drones guided entirely by artificial intelligence. 103 micro drones have recently been tested by the Department of Defense.
Imagine a world worthy of science-fiction movies where pilotless planes fight merciless battles against the enemy. Well, we still pray that no war will break out again, but it would be exciting, wouldn’t it? Beyond this aspect, these drones could be very useful in assistance operations as mentioned above. A real advance then.
