The Use of Cybernetic Systems Based on Artificial Intelligence as Support for the Decision-Making Process in the Military Field


In the future, at the strategic, operational, and tactical levels of warfare, replacing human will and human decision with autonomous Artificial Intelligence (AI) weapon systems becomes every day a high possible scenario. These systems are already in use and have the ability to successfully deal with threats faster than humans. Countering AI weapon systems will represent a great challenge in a future war. Both military and commercial robots will in the future incorporate “artificial intelligence” (AI) that could make them capable of performing tasks and missions on their own. In the military context, this gives rise to a debate as to whether such robots should be allowed to carry out missions, especially if there is a possibility that any human life may be in the line of fire. Thus, it can be stated that unconventional knowledge will be required for successfully defeat of such a weapon system.
