Advanced artificial intelligence technology-wise is China’s upcoming project for their latest cruise missiles that is very alarming for the allied forces – because it’s just a matter of time that this communist powerhouse cannot be contained anymore by the present superpowers that are against its ideologies.
AI as the project is called, is designed to revolutionize war fighting in due time as it was revealed by the senior designer of China’s Aerospace and Industry Corp.
Wang Changqing said: “We plan to adopt a ‘plug and play’ approach in the development of new cruise missiles, which will enable our military commanders to tailor-make missiles in accordance with combat conditions and their specific requirements.”
He also elaborated that the missiles’ high level automation, is equivalent to that of a drone flying to gather intelligence and hit target with very minimum human intervention.
China hailed itself as the world leader when it comes to AI technology that has been used in medicine, robotics, stock trading and scientific discovery, and now in military warfare.
Mr Changqing explained that this invention will “allow commanders to control them in a real-time manner, or to use a fire-and-forget mode, or even to add more tasks to in-flight missiles”. This is inline with Chinese President Xi Jinping’s army modernization which is the country’s top priority.
