Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become so advanced that soon in the near future, most of the thinking and strategic decisions will be overtaken by these computers. Humans will no longer require extra help to arrange their thoughts or courses of action. Most of their affairs will be handled in an automated manner by this marvelous piece of technology.

The Pentagon is working on one of the trial projects and experiments of the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI). If successful, this project will be able to predict the upcoming events for the military. The results will be based on facts and figures provided to the system. It will then make calculations accordingly to predict the future.

The tests and trials being run are called the Global Information Dominance Experiments (GIDE). The sources of information input are vast and eclectic, making the predictions more informed and closer to reality. Moreover, cloud computing is going to be considered an indispensable part of the whole process, allowing officials to access the data from anywhere without any glitches or errors.

In a press briefing last week, US Air Force General Glen D. VanHerck stated that this innovative technology will not only aid the officials of the military and their operations but the breakthrough can also benefit the civilian sector massively. This advanced access of information for the military will buy it enough time to make arrangements for an attack or placing defense systems if any offense is sensed. This will be done at a much faster pace because calculations and conclusions drawn by AI will be faster than the observations made by the human brain.

It is said that the data already exists. This AI system will only make it available and meaningful for the users, giving them enough time to decide smartly about their choices. This is being labeled as a decision space. For example, it can also be used for managing car parking systems, detecting and predicting the expected influx of vehicles.
