The Role Of Artificial Intelligence In Facilitating Military Innovation
Most scholarly research into the concept of military innovation tend to focus on the nature of military innovation and how it comes about, but rarely investigate the reasons why these innovations come about in the first place. Artificial Intelligence (AI), which forms the basis for many new technological advancements today, can compel military innovation. AI does not constitute military innovation, but the technological advancements produced based on AI can inspire senior officers to innovate in their military establishment. This paper seeks to conceptualize military innovation by considering various definitions and schools of thought on the subject and to examine the potential reasons for innovation as identified by Rosen, highlighting the role of AI within each of them.
