Information in War

Military Innovation, Battle Networks, and the Future of Artificial Intelligence

An in-depth assessment of innovations in military information technology informs hypothetical outcomes for artificial intelligence adaptations

In the coming decades, artificial intelligence (AI) could revolutionize the way humans wage war. The military organizations that best innovate and adapt to this AI revolution will likely gain significant advantages over their rivals. To this end, great powers such as the United States, China, and Russia are already investing in novel sensing, reasoning, and learning technologies that will alter how militaries plan and fight. The resulting transformation could fundamentally change the character of war.

In Information in War, Benjamin Jensen, Christopher Whyte, and Scott Cuomo provide a deeper understanding of the AI revolution by exploring the relationship between information, organizational dynamics, and military power. The authors analyze how militaries adjust to new information communication technology historically to identify opportunities, risks, and obstacles that will almost certainly confront modern defense organizations as they pursue AI pathways to the future. Information in War builds on these historical cases to frame four alternative future scenarios exploring what the AI revolution could look like in the US military by 2040.

Reviews

"In the flood of new books on AI, this one stands out. It does not simply speculate on how AI might be adopted. Instead, it analyzes how new technology adoption is driven more by social, economic, and political processes than by the potential value of the technology itself. . . Information in War is an essential read for those shepherding AI along the tortuous path to effective employment."—Dr. T.X. Hammes, distinguished research fellow, National Defense University

"Jensen, Whyte, and Cuomo's thought-provoking book is less about the promise of the military uses of AI and more about why that promise may not be realized."—Foreign Affairs

"The authors, coming from different institutional backgrounds, have written a short book that is more than the sum of its parts."—Choice
