US military test AI that predicts the future. The idea is that they can detect events days in advance and, for that, they use data from different sources (sensors, satellites, radars, among others).
This scenario can be associated with the movie ‘Minority Report’, which presents a proposal very similar to what they are doing. Called ‘Global Information Dominance Experiments (GIDE), the project is based on cloud computing, which stores large amounts of data from around the world.

Glen D. VanHerck, head of US Northern Command, explained more details about this future-proof AI at a press conference. As he said, the project “incorporates a fundamental shift in the way we use information and data to increase space. Decision-making process, from the tactical to the strategic level”.
The goal is just one: to be able to anticipate the potentially ‘enemy’ movements of the planet and of the population, with enough time so that we are not caught by surprise. “The threats we face and the pace of change in the geostrategic environment continue to advance at a truly alarming pace, so we plan to follow that up with AI that predicts the future,” the general said at the July 28 press conference.
The Pentagon has just completed a third series of tests and the GIDE will soon begin step number four. Those involved in the project didn’t reveal much information, but as VanHerck points out, the data already exists and the AI that predicts the future will only make it more accessible. “They process them very quickly and provide them to decision makers, which I call superior decision making,” he adds.
The system allows you to alert authorities in real time when something bad is about to happen, for example, Artificial Intelligence will identify many events. According to what they said, the AI may “suddenly see an increase in activity in the parking lot of a military base or research station. An event deemed worthy of interest, which the system will cross-reference with other relevant data such as satellite imagery. Forward-looking AI allows leaders to examine the situation in more detail and determine whether or not there is a need to respond.”
“We take sensors from all over the world, not just military sensors, but commercially available information, and we use them for field knowledge,” says VanHerck. “The ability to see the days ahead creates a space for decision”, that is, we will be prepared for everything bad that could harm our lives.
