【美国国防部:通过人工智能来打击ISIS】美国国防部提出了Maven计划,通过人工智能来分析大量无人机拍摄的ISIS地区的画面,希望人工智能通过深度学习来发现有一些模式,帮助人们判断哪些地区可能会是恐怖分子藏匿的地点。由于美国在ISIS活动区域部署了大量的无人机,这些无人机传输大量的高清画面,这些庞大的数据对人工处理造成了挑战。通过人工只能可以帮助人们确认信息,并且提高效率。

Pentagon plans to use AI to defeat ISIS: Project Maven set to analyse drone footage

A US Air Force MQ-9 Reaper unmanned aerial vehicle: Military bosses say  intelligence analysts are 'overwhelmed' by the amount of video being recorded over the battlefield by drones with high resolution cameras.

  • Will analyse aerial surveillance video to look for patterns that can help analysts 
  • Intelligence analysts are 'overwhelmed' by the amount of video being recorded
  • Hoped machine learning system will be able to 'clean up' images

The Pentagon has revealed a new AI system designed to lead the hunt for Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria.

Codenamed Project Maven, it will analyse aerial surveillance video to look for patterns that can help operators.

It comes as military bosses say the thousands of military and civilian intelligence analysts are 'overwhelmed' by the amount of video being recorded over the battlefield by drones with high resolution cameras.

 

'We have to tackle the problem a different way,' Air Force Lt. Gen. John N.T.'Jack' Shanahan, director for defense intelligence for warfighter support, and the man tasked with finding the new technology, told Defense One.

'We're not going to solve it by throwing more people at the problem

 

'That's the last thing that we actually want to do.

'We want to be smarter about what we're doing.'

The new project will be part of Project Maven, a fast-moving effort launched last month by Deputy Defense Secretary Bob Work to use machine learning techniques officially known as the Algorithmic Warfare Cross Functional Team.

The group will look to integrate big data and machine learning across the military.

HOW IT WILL WORK

 Codenamed Project Maven, it will analyse aerial surveillance video to look for patterns that can help operators.

It comes as military bosses say the thousands of military and civilian intelligence analysts are 'overwhelmed' by the amount of video being recorded over the battlefield by drones with high resolution cameras.

'There's some hard work behind the scenes that has to be done to first of all get that cleaned up,' Shanahan said.

About 60 percent of the full-motion video gathered over the battlefield is benign while the drone or aircraft flies to and from a point of interest.

Then there could be bad weather where the camera cannot see through the clouds.

The goal is to find technology that can clean up that video, 'finding the juicy parts where there's activity and then labeling the data,' Shanahan said.

That work today is done by three-man teams of analysts.

 

It is working hand in hand with the Pentagon's Strategic Capabilities Office, a group modify existing weapons and technology to make them more versatile and lethal.

 'There are a thousand things we want to do with artificial intelligence, machine learning, deep learning, computer vision, but everybody has cautioned us, don't take on too much the first time you do this,' Shanahan said.

The team is also scouring silicon valley for technology and people to help it meets its ambitious timesline.

'We want to deliver — in this calendar year — some capabilities out to the warfighters that make a difference,' Shanahan tolde Defense One.

 

Shanahan — whom Work put in charge of the team — has nearly 33 years in uniform. He spent most of his first 15 years of his career as a weapons systems officer in the backseats of F-4 and F-15E combat jets. Since then, he's been deeply rooted in intelligence roles in the Air Force and joint positions.

The Algorithmic Warfare team is working hand in hand with the Pentagon's Strategic Capabilities Office, a group modify existing weapons and technology to make them more versatile and lethal.

'The integration between our respective initiatives and organizations will be immensely beneficial in moving the ball forward,' Shanahan said.

Officials see the effort to automate intelligence processing as the starting point for using new technology in other military functions.

'You have to go after a manageable problem, solve it, show early wins and then start to open Pandora's box and go after all of these other challenges across the department.'

Right now, there are fragmented, one-off efforts across the military services to use this type of technology.
