Surprising no one, the Pentagon wants more of that AI goodness in its weaponry. They want it about $2 billion worth of bad. 💰

But, having AI be able to explain its decision making appear to be vitally important, which is nice to see. It sounds like plenty of people are uneasy with the idea of robots doing what they want with no oversight, at least in war scenarios. 👍

enabling AI systems to make decisions even when distractions are all around, and to then explain those decisions to their operators will be “critically important…in a warfighting scenario.”
