As new technologies and capabilities have emerged in recent years, artificial intelligence and security have become intertwined, leading to a high level of safety.

Artificial intelligence gives machines human-like intelligence, autonomy, and judgment, but it is also an area under rapid development, and it is already being used for security and commercial purposes. The application of artificial intelligence to border control technology allows countries to protect their citizens and soldiers. Advances in machine learning algorithms, the rapid growth of digital information, and the intensification of computer capabilities are currently driving this technology into various advanced protection systems.

Analyticsinsight.net notes recent developments in the field of AI are relevant to national security. In addition to defense options, artificial intelligence can also do mission tasks, logistics, cyber, control unmanned systems, and coordinate weapons systems. In the past, there was the belief that artificial intelligence would replace soldiers during battle, however, today it’s clear that technology actually assists soldiers in their many missions.

The ability of artificial intelligence to improve military performance makes artificial intelligence a transformative national security technology, similar to nuclear weapons, aircraft, computers and biotechnology. Currently, artificial intelligence is used to automate the development of weapon systems, and to predict the failures of helicopter engines with greater accuracy.

Furthermore, intelligence agencies may benefit from advances in artificial intelligence, which along with machine learning can enable accurate analysis of images, sound recordings, foreign languages, and other forms of data.
