This article discusses the subject of AI since it is currently receiving broad interest throughout the country. AI may finally be ready to emerge from its long gestation period and play a major role in our defense systems. Within the last few years we have witnessed an almost explosive expansion of the field AI within various agencies of the Department of Defense. This has been sparked by the rapid growth in computer technology, by the development and better understanding of AI concepts, and by the progress that has been made in sensors and control devices. It is gratifying to note that early DoD investments have helped to establish the scientific foundations upon which the present U.S. capabilities and thrusts in AI and Robotics are based.
