As artificial intelligence (AI) developers strive to deliver the potential of their applications to future battlefields, the largest stumbling block will likely be the lack of data engineering for an appropriate backside network and automation infrastructure. The following article in SIGNAL Magazine outlines where the DoD may want to start in governing data engineering for … More Data Engineering for AI at the Tactical Edge
Slapping the term “cognitive” or “smart” in front of a given technology is an easy marketing tool conveying an advanced level of automation whereby devices change behaviors with little or no human control. Cognitive networks, cognitive electronic warfare tools, cognitive radios. Without “cognitive,” they would just be dumb devices. In this essay in SIGNAL Magzine, … More Cognitive Device Wish List
Every day, consumers are targeted with precision-guided marketing from both legitimate sources and covert operators. Influencers use recommender systems, which are automated information filtering systems to control content in news feeds, social media environments and streaming media services. These systems know what information—good or bad—will capture a person’s attention. In this article in SIGNAL Magazine, I argue … More Precision-Guided Marketing Frames the Future of Information Operations
