As vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Paul Selva testified last week: "I won't be argumentative but I will take umbrage with the notion that our military has been gutted…I stand here today a person that's worn this uniform for 35 years.

Paul Selva, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, noted that the commercial world has already developed sophisticated autonomous systems.

"You and I are on the cusp of being able to own cars that will drive themselves," he told a largely civilian audience at the Brookings Institution, referring to smart vehicles such as ones developed by Google.
...
Learning machines could be especially helpful when it comes to analyzing big data, Selva said. "We have … a requirement to be able to sort some of the largest databases on the planet, if you just think about our intelligence databases and all the digitized information that exists."
The Defense Department needs algorithms that would allow a machine to detect abnormalities or changes in the operating environment, highlight them for analysts and then make recommendations about how to respond, he said.
"The data sets that we deal with have gotten so large and so complex that if we don't have something to help us sort them, we're just going to be buried in the data," he said. "The deep learning concept of teaching coherent machines ... to advise humans and making them our partners has huge consequences."
But testing deep learning systems to ensure their effectiveness and reliability could be challenging. Software capable of telling defense officials what a military machine has learned does not yet exist, Selva noted.
"That is one of the milestones we are going to have to cross before we can actually get into a high confidence area where we can say the technology is actually going to do what we want it to do, because not only can we physically test it, we can intellectually test it," he said.
...
"We are going to place multiple bets" on promising technologies, Selva said.
"My tolerance for risk is pretty high," he added. "When I go out to Silicon Valley and ask a software engineer to think about a learning software that's going to answer one of my problems, it's a really hard question. … In this cycle of rapid innovation in civilian and military technology, we have to be able to accept failure, not in the battle space [but] in the development phase."
The Pentagon isn't keeping up with the private sector, Selva said.
...
But as technology improves, the Pentagon could eventually face a "Terminator conundrum," Selva said.
