The Army working on a battlefield AI ‘teammate’ for soldiers

“It is a tool that Lt. Col. Chris Lowrance, head of autonomous systems with the Army’s AI Task Force, said will act as a “teammate” and reduce “cognitive load” by alerting soldiers of incoming threats.

Soldiers in vehicles or holding mobile devices will be able to customize the feed of data that the ATR-MCAS will show and alert them to, Lowrance said. For example, a soldier driving a tank could set a laptop to only display images of enemy tanks when the computer-vision system detects them.”
