THE MILITARY SHOULD TEACH AI TO WATCH DRONE FOOTAGE

In 2011 alone, the US Air Force amassed over 325,000 hours of drone video—that’s about 37 years of video gathered by one military service in one calendar year, and that was six years ago. y ceding video analysis to machines, the military will be able to leverage all the collected data instead of the extremely small percentage currently examined—a Defense department official tells us that 99 percent of all drone video has not been reviewed. If the Pentagon can tap into that trove of video, it could obtain a depth of knowledge about its adversaries and areas of operations that would be unrivaled by any nation or non-state organization.
