Artificial Intelligence certainly has piqued the interest of the defense community here in Washington, DC. The Brookings Institution has a recent study that shows 307 vendors working with the federal government on many aspects of artificial intelligence.
Today, we look at a company that has been involved with helping humans leverage information from data for over 25 years. His emphasis is to be a champion of human and AI teams.
During this interview with Daniel Serfaty the founder and CEO of Aptima. He suggests that artificial intelligence may not be the panacea everyone seems to be looking for. He talks about some of the skills needed to develop effective AI. For example, one must be careful during the machine learning aspect of development.
However, one can see some applications for AI in the federal government. One obvious example is diagnosis x-rays. Today, machines can see issues that may elude diagnosticians.
Daniel Serfaty is not saying that AI should take over the diagnosis, however, AI can be a tool that can assist in understanding medical issues.
Also, COVID has put an enormous amount of stress on hospitals. Let’s say we have a surgeon who is going into multiple procedures late in the week. Wouldn’t it be effective to be able to ask a medical system that has AI built in for an opinion?
A second example may be the proliferation of space debris. There is an estimated 26,000 in space right now. We know 30,000 satellites will be launched by 2030 – how can anyone keep track of a myriad of satellites and thousands of pieces of debris? This is a problem that collecting information and making course projections could help ensure safe satellite transmissions.
