Posted September 17, 2018 05:11:50The US military’s automated web monitoring network is turning to robots for more than just security.
The US Air Force has launched a program to use robots to help track down and disrupt cyberattacks, and the Air Force Times reports that it will begin deploying the robots to US bases around the world in 2018.
The military is also using robots for search and rescue, and is working with Google to develop a tool that can identify potential intruders using machine learning.
The robot can help in the investigation of remote-sensing systems and detect suspicious activity.
The Air Force is also working with Boeing and the US Department of Defense to develop robots that can help detect and neutralize threats to critical infrastructure, the Times reports.
The Army’s unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) program is also looking to get robots to the battlefield, and has been testing drones equipped with a laser system that can detect explosives.
