AI research strengthens certainty in battlefield decision-making

A new framework for neural networks’ processing enables artificial intelligence to better judge objects and potential threats in hostile environments.

Researchers from the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command, known as DEVCOM, Army Research Laboratory and university partners from the Internet of Battlefield Things Collaborative Research Alliance, or IoBT CRA, developed a method for neural networks to be more confident in their understanding of battlefield environments.

To achieve this, researchers reviewed frameworks to represent uncertainty, categorized sources of uncertainty in military information-networks’ common operating environment, and most importantly created solutions to manage uncertainty within systems.
