Russia's Kalashnikov arms manufacturer (part of state hi-tech corporation Rostec) has developed certain expertise in creating military systems with artificial intelligence that implies weapons' self-learning, Industrial Director of the Rostec Conventional Armament, Ammunition and Special Chemistry Cluster Sergei Abramov said on Wednesday.

The need, prospects and expediency of creating and adapting artificial intelligence systems for military use do not evoke any doubts and all the leading countries are taking efforts for introducing artificial intelligence into existing and future weapons, he said.

Russia lays groundwork for self-learning artificial intelligence weapons

The need, prospects and expediency of creating and adapting artificial intelligence systems for military use do not evoke any doubts and all the leading countries are taking efforts for introducing artificial intelligence into existing and future weapons, he said.

While a large number of weapons are in service today (for example, short-range air defense and anti-ballistic missile defense systems) operating in the automated mode from detecting to destroying targets, 'these systems can hardly be called artificial intelligence because they are not self-learning systems: they strictly follow algorithms embedded by developers,' the Rostec official said.

"As for the presence of our military, the military contingent issue is not simple at all.

But let me draw your attention to the fact that I did not call these deployment sites ‘bases.’ We are not building long-term facilities there.

Putin recalled that the Russian deployment sites were in Syria in accordance with a a treaty with the Syrian government in full conformity with international law.

We shall never forget about these losses, and we shall never stop taking care of the families of our comrades who have not returned to us from Syrian soil,"

He pointed out that Russian military personnel in Syria was on an important and noble mission of protecting the interests of Russia, because thousands of militants, including Russian and Central Asian natives, have gathered in Syria.

"When we began trials of those modern weapons, including missile ones, teams from our defense industry enterprises left for the Syrian republic and they perfected those weapons at the scene.

"They have begun to understand what a present-day armed conflict looks like, how important are communications, intelligence and interaction between different units and formations and how important it is to secure operation of the space group, the air force and the ground force, including special operations,"

Russian ‘Skynet’ to lead military robots on the battlefield

The United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation (OPK), an integral part of the Rostec arms corporation, says it has developed the Unicum (Latin for 'the only one') software package that gives military or civilian robots enough artificial intelligence to perform complicated tasks completely on their own.

Will Robots Fight the Next War? U.S. and Russia Bring Artificial Intelligence to the Battlefield

Artificial intelligence has increasingly been integrated into the weapons systems of the world's leading militaries, and at least one expert has said the futuristic technology may soon be the subject of a new Cold War.

In a piece published Tuesday by The Conversation, North Dakota State University assistant professor Jeremy Straub argued that unlike the nuclear weapons that dominated much of the 21st century arms race between the U.S. and the Soviet Union, the use of cyberweapons and artificial intelligence largely remained 'fair game,' even as tensions again flared between the rivals.

Both countries have invested heavily in developing new tools to wage war on this new front, but Russia particularly has sought to use it as an opportunity to upstage the more conventionally powerful U.S. Related: U.S. is losing to Russia and China in war for artificial intelligence, report says  'Now, more than 30 years after the end of the Cold War, the U.S. and Russia have decommissioned tens of thousands of nuclear weapons.

and Germany have also complained about alleged Russian hacking, and the latter formed a new military branch last year specifically dedicated to countering cyber ops, which Straub has previously warned could soon involve AI-generated assaults that would devastate current defenses.

As part of an ambitious effort to restore his military to its former Soviet glory and likely beyond that, Russian President Vladimir Putin has prioritized not only electronic warfare, but also the use of artificial intelligence, which he famously called 'the future, not only for Russia, but for all humankind' in a September 2017 back-to-school speech to students in Yaroslavl.

Artificial Intelligence: How Algorithms Make Systems Smart

Back in 1952, Turing “published a set of equations that tried to explain the patterns we see in nature, from the dappled stripes adorning the back of a zebra to the whorled leaves on a plant stem, or even the complex tucking and folding that turns a ball of cells into an organism.” [“The Powerful Equations That Explain The Patterns We See In Nature,”

It’s taken almost another lifetime to bring his biological vision into scientific reality, but it’s turning out to be more than a neat explanation and some fancy equations.” Although Turing’s algorithms have been useful in identifying how patterns emerge in nature, other correlations generated by algorithms have been more suspect.

The Wall Street Journal, 23 March 2014] She adds, “Finding surprising correlations has never been easier, thanks to the flood of data that’s now available.” Gage reports that one “company found that deals closed during a new moon are, on average, 43% bigger than when the moon is full.” Other weird correlations that have been discovered include, “People answer the phone more often when it’s snowy, cold or very humid;

found that people who fill out their loan applications using all capital letters default more often than people who use all lowercase letters, and more often still than people who use uppercase and lowercase letters correctly.” Gage continues: “Are sales deals affected by the cycles of the moon?

Fast new data-crunching software combined with a flood of public and private data is allowing companies to test these and other seemingly far-fetched theories, asking questions that few people would have thought to ask before.

By combining human and artificial intelligence, they seek to uncover clever insights and make predictions that could give businesses an advantage in an increasingly competitive marketplace.” ZestFinance Chief Executive Douglas Merrill told Gage, “Data scientists need to verify whether their findings make sense.

Gage reports, “ZestFinance discarded another finding from its software that taller people are better at repaying loans, a hypothesis that Mr. Merrill calls silly.” By adding reasoning to machine learning systems correlations and insights become much more useful.

TechCrunch, 9 August 2014] She adds, “As advanced as technology is today, its main shortcoming as it becomes a large part of daily life in society is that it does not share these assumptions.” Havasi continues: “Common-sense reasoning is a field of artificial intelligence that aims to help computers understand and interact with people more naturally by finding ways to collect these assumptions and teach them to computers.

It holds significant advantages over existing ontology and rule-based systems, or systems based simply on machine learning.” Algorithms can make systems smarter, but without adding a little common sense into the equation they can still produce some pretty bizarre results.
