Project Maven to Deploy Computer Algorithms to War Zone by Year's End• https://www.defense.gov, By Cheryl Pellerin
Presenters included Marine Corps Col. Drew Cukor, chief of the Algorithmic Warfare Cross-Function Team in the Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Operations Directorate-Warfighter Support in the Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence.
By the end of the calendar year, the department will field advanced computer algorithms onto government platforms to extract objects from massive amounts of moving or still imagery, Cukor said in his remarks.
"People and computers will work symbiotically to increase the ability of weapon systems to detect objects," Cukor added. "Eventually we hope that one analyst will be able to do twice as much work, potentially three times as much, as they're doing now. That's our goal."
