The USA develops artificial intelligence weapons systems

The US Department of Defense develops artificial intelligence weapons systems with the help of which it plans to radically change the course of hostilities. According to the newspaper, a small aircraft equipped with six propellers was turned into a combat robot that was able to find and identify people behind cover armed with AK-47. In addition, the US Department of Defense develops robotic fighter aircrafts that could perform raids simultaneously with man-carrying aircraft.  Rockets capable of choosing their target, as well as automatic warships, capable of independently searching for enemy submarines, have already been tested. In general, according to the newspaper, funding for these developments is estimated at $ 18 billion. The NYT also notes that besides military experts, few people noticed how the Pentagon made the use of artificial intelligence a central element of the strategy aimed at maintaining the position of the largest and most powerful military power for the United States.
