Israeli Defence Forces disclose their AI war strategy

IDF has been at the forefront of using technology to improve coordination among different units deployed on various frontlines.

The Israel Defence Forces has disclosed their AI war data factory and strategy at Tel Aviv University’s Blavatnik Virtual AI week. The speed at which a new weapon can be created using Data and AI is totally different when compared with physical jets and submarines,  Brig General Aviad Dagan, Director of the IDF’s Digital Transformation Administration, said.

“Data and AI can actually win wars… not only arms, physical jets and submarines,” he said.

IDF has been at the forefront of using technology to improve coordination among different units deployed on various frontlines. IDF currently uses digital networking in the cloud between all forces – from headquarters to frontline command centres to troops in the field. Israeli military plans to enhance its edge architecture by building mini-clouds or networks for its arms and smaller subdivisions. This will help the units to process and receive data at faster rates compared to the current network.

A wide variety of data points gathered by sensory detection of an enemy will provide the IDF with the ability to evaluate who the enemy was, check the various options to respond to the threat, analyse how much fuel is needed by the drones or other units- and then quickly dispatch the most viable targeting order, Dagan said.
