Throughout history, technology has had a big impact on military success. States that quickly and effectively incorporate new technologies into their military have a big edge over their rivals.
This is especially true when it comes to AI. The US and China are currently in a race for global AI supremacy, and it could have a huge impact on the future of the world. China might not agree with this idea, but the US does.
This was made clear in a speech given by Kathleen Hicks, the US Assistant Secretary of Defense. Her speech was important because it gave us a better understanding of the US military’s strategic thinking on China, AI, Autonomous Systems, and Technological Innovation.
