The US Space Force’s chief scientist has said that “human augmentation” is “imperative” in order for it to maintain military dominance.
‘In the last century, Western civilization transformed from an industrial-based society to an information-based society, but today we’re on the brink of a new age: the age of human augmentation,’ said Dr Joel Mozer, during an event at the Airforce Research Laboratory.
“‘In our business of national defense, it’s imperative that we embrace this new age, lest we fall behind our strategic competitors.”
There will be “unimaginable” advances made over the next decade in areas including artificial intelligence, that would make the military able to strategise tactics that “no human could”. Eventually “autonomous” programs will advise commanders in real time, Dr Mozer also said. The Independent has reached out to the armed service to confirm these quotes.https://news.yahoo.com/us-space-force-create-augmented-160748816.html
