US Navy Billions of Dollars

The United States is investing increasingly in the AI-powered ocean combat network, known as the Consolidated Afloat Networks and Enterprise Services (CANES). The endeavor is to help US Navy officials to connect ships, submarines, and on-shore locations by utilizing Artificial Intelligence. The professionals have been trying to improve the network to mark use of AI in the military system.

The expansion on ocean combat is a hope for CANES to minimize the efforts of sailors that go in maintaining the operations by the army officials. The efforts have been made to save US Navy billions of dollars. Utilizing the AI-powered networking would enable tactical information processing including threat and target information, which will help US Navy to safeguard fleets.

The US Navy hopes to deploy CANES by 2020 on at least 190 vessels as well as Maritime Operations Centers,  “We are very interested in artificial intelligence being able to help us better than it is today,” Rear Adm. Danelle Barrett, Navy Cyber Security Division Director, to a forum “We want to trust a machine and also look at AI in terms of how we use it against adversaries.”

Besides Navy, US air force is taking keen interest to deploy AI in developing advanced military flying machines. The US air force is thus incorporating exceptional AI-powered devices to gain major insights into their operations. Not only Artificial Intelligence but also machine learning is also helping US air force professionals to gather insightful information.

The professionals have been making intelligent use of machine learning to better utilize drone surveillance footage. Besides the US, China and Russia are also utilizing the benefits by employing AI and machine learning in their military operations. It is true that automation could lead to better utilization of devices. This will also help to reduce manpower in the military operations.
