The israel defense forces idf has deployed ai and supercomputers to identify strike targets in what they are calling the first artificial intelligence, a war in may this year the idf used a swarm of ai, guided drones and supercomputing to comb through data and identify new targets within The gaza strip it’s thought this is the first time a swarm of ai drones has been used in combat. The use of ai in drone strikes, has seen a surge in war zones. With a recent u.n report, revealing libya launched an autonomous, weaponized drone attack on hoftar affiliated forces last year, the first time an ai, guided drone identified and possibly attacked human targets without human input. Now the technology appears to have found significant use in the israel gaza conflict, which reportedly saw over 4 400 rockets fired into israel and 1500 strikes into gaza in the 11 days of intense fighting in may. The exploitation and use of ai effectively in war requires a lot of information. The machine learning systems need to be fed with data collected through satellites aerial, reconnaissance vehicles and years of ground intel with that it can identify targets and predict when and where enemy attacks may occur.
