As the Israeli and Hamas conflict intensifies, the militant has embarked on a journey to explore effective mechanisms to suppress Palestinian activities. In an advanced communication, the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) revealed plans to launch AI-powered tools to support the military to expand its operation in Gaza.
The IDF confirmed that due to the intensity of the operation, the Israeli law enforcers will adopt AI-oriented management tools. The newly launched AI-based system dubbed “The Gospel” exhibits distinctive features to support the up-to-the-minute intelligence service commonly used in analyzing advice from the public.
Israeli Adopts AI Technology in War Against Hamas
A statement from the IDF spokesperson revealed that launching AI-oriented tools aims to improve the accessibility of vital information to the militants. The official stated that the integration of AI into the military tools and infrastructure seeks to strengthen the operations of three IDF branches: Israeli Air Force Intelligence, Southern Command Intelligence Center, and Naval Intelligence.
With the integration of AI in critical tools of the IDF, the spokesperson affirmed that the team behind the exciting development ensured that the new system meets the right quality and standard for intelligence purposes.
Primarily, the official restated that the AI-powered system aims at bringing down all the Hamas activities. The spokesperson described Hamas as an enemy of the Israelis for threatening national security.
Based on the aftermaths of the unprecedented Hamas attack on Israelis, the spokesperson retaliated that the IDF’s recent development aims at overthrowing the Hamas militant while shielding the innocent from further damages. The official added that the IDF acted uncompromisingly to the enemy for years.
Israel Seeks to Expand Ground Operation in Gaza
The executive pointed out that the new AI-powered system protects civilians from harm. In a separate report from The Guardian, the IDF explained the distinctive features and significance of the new system.
Among the mentioned features include the ability to generate recommendations from the public reporting the private homes of suspects involved in the Hamas operations. Currently, the IDF has gathered over 30,000 suspects involved in the Hamas brutal killings that claimed the lives of hundreds.
The IDF plans to leverage the AI-oriented system to trace 15,000 criminals posing as a threat to the national security of Gaza. Since the war began, The Guardian confirmed that the number of potential targets has been growing to thousands.
The IDF’s latest development mirrors the impressive move taken by the military led by the US to adopt AI technology to double down operations. Last week deputy secretary of Defense Kathleen Hicks launched the Replicator initiative aiming at placing the attributable autonomous systems across multiple domains.
Significance of AI Technology in the Military
Lately, the military has mainly adopted AI technology to support their operations on the battlefield. The desire to gain supreme power in war and conquer the enemy has challenged the US to introduce AI systems in the airspace for intelligence.
Elsewhere, the Russian government led by President Vladimir Putin revealed plans to leverage the power of AI in war. In a previous report, President Putin argued that despite the impressive development of AI technologies, Western countries should not be granted monopolistic power in the artificial intelligence industry.
He argued that if Western countries are given total control of AI technology, other countries will be disadvantaged and lack an incentive for innovation. Addressing a recent AI conference, the Russian President plans to strengthen the country’s AI strategy.
Since the inception of AI in the military, the US has been the global leader in the responsible use of AI in the army. This development has positioned the US as the most potent military force globally due to the unparalleled service of AI in the defense and armed forces.
The attempt to support its military activities has forced the US to formulate practical AI principles and policies. A statement from the Undersecretary of Defense for Policy, Sasha Baker, restated the need for the responsible use of AI technology.
The executive affirmed that the responsible use of AI will support critical players in developing common principles and supporting the best practices of emerging technology.
